MPN: Most Probable Number and Other Microbial Enumeration Techniques

Calculates the Most Probable Number (MPN) to quantify the concentration (density) of microbes in serial dilutions of a laboratory sample (described in Jarvis, 2010 <doi:10.1111/j.1365-2672.2010.04792.x>). Also calculates the Aerobic Plate Count (APC) for similar microbial enumeration experiments.
