In view of the potentiality of electrets radiorespirometry already established for rapid detection of the microorganisms, further standardisation and the technical refinements were done. The technique was evaluated and validated on a large number of test urine samples apart from the comparative evaluation with regard to conventional microbiological method. The matched results were found in about 82.5% out of the total number of 200 test samples evaluated and estimated. The technique was found to be equally validating for the commonly encountered microorganisms, namely E-Coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas and Klebseilla in serial assay batches. The technique was also found to be effective in rapid detection of the microorganisms present in the relatively lower inoculum size.
