Abstract: Computer keyboards of a teaching laboratory were examined and bacteria were isolated from computer keyboards. The subsequent tests were done for the bacterial isolates: methyl red, vogus proskaur, citrate utilization, urease and TSI. This study paves the way to look at an inanimate object like computer keyboard as potential reservoir of bacteria. 
Keywords: Biochemical Analysis, Computer Keyboard, Bacteria.
Scope of the Article: Biochemical Analysis.
