Abstract Microbial culture, ELISA, nucleic acid testing are the main methods for clinic microbial testing today. An effective method for microbial enrichment not only will be helpful on optimizing the sensitivity of the follow-up testing, but also will determine the availability of some testing methods when the amount of microorganisms are extremely low in the sample. The research progress on microbial enrichment methods and its applications are reviewed and discussed in this report.
