Mobile phone is part of human accessories and used in every moment in social life but is normally not cleaned properly. They serves as main source of transmission for many pathogenic disorders. The present study seeks to identify the bacteria present on the mobile phones used by 200 volunteer students, Cleaners, Workers and Staff of Hindu college of Pharmacy. The surface of phones were swabbed with sterile sticks and immediately streaked on three plates each of Nutrient agar. The petriplates was incubated in an inverted position at 37°C for 24 hours. Following incubation the microbial colonies were isolated and identified. Thus the purpose of this study was to investigate microbiological colonization on mobile phones and to suggest that the importance of following proper hygiene habits of using phones as they prove to be potential transmission vehicles for microbial populations responsible for several diseases.
