The purpose of this study was to evaluate the microbiological and physicochemical quality of the Placenta. The analyzes were performed in our laboratory at the Faculty of Sciences of Kenitra. We evaluated the microbial load of the Placenta by determining the FMAT (Total Aerobic Mesophilic Flora) Coliforms (total and fecal), fecal streptococci and staphylococci. The results showed that the abundance in FMAT in all samples ranged from 0 to 5,16.10 6 cfu / ml. The burden of faecal streptococci varies between 4,82.10 1,64.10 ³ 5 u cfu / ml. The Fecal Coliforms (FC) can be found in our samples with an abundance ranging from 00 to 3,08.10 5 cfu / ml. Total Coliforms (TC) vary between 1,42.10 4 5 and 4,8.10 cfu / ml. In terms of Staphylococci, we conducted several counts, and each time, we note the total absence of its colonies. The physicochemical analyzes of the pH and acidity, showed average values of 6.97 for the average values of pH and acidity of the order of 0.0315 ° D. In conclusion, we can say that the placenta is indeed a hospital waste polluted with the opportunity to be a vector of infectious diseases.
