Bacteria in Zone of Inhibition
Country: United States
Date: June 2008
What additional steps would be taken to determine whether the
bacteria in the zone of inhibition are alive or dead, to see if the
chemical was bacteriocidal or bacteriostatic?
Some more info would help here. What are you trying to do? What's your
experimental setup? You mention 'additional' steps -- what have you tried
already? It sounds like you know the different between -cidal and -static,
so is this just a microbiology-lab-technique question? What is your
application (e.g. presentation to kids, lab report / class assignment,
etc.)? Also, if applicable, who is your audience (age/level)?
