Microbiologists and pathologists are two of the many types of scientists who study microorganisms and are able to see and recognize the differences in physical appearance between the structures of the varying types of microbes when looking at them under a microscope. They can also be differentiated by their RNA (nucleic acids) using lab tests.

Micro organisms, as the name suggests, cannot be seen with the naked eyes. Therefore the only way to identify it, is with the use of microscopes. However, there are some exceptions. Fungus is also comes under the category of micro organisms. But it can be seen as moulds when bread expires. It is because fungus spores tend to be together creating balls, ie, moulds.

Observing the microbes under a microscope can provide some difference in physical appearance. Using cultures to grow microbes can also show unique traits.

Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology is a reference that is used in bacterial identification. It lists characteristics of all known, identifiable bacteria.
