When you have finished studying a culture, pour enough household bleach into it to cover the bottom of the dish.
Then cover the culture, seal it in a plastic bag, and throw it away.
Clinical microbiology laboratory plays several important roles in the management of bacterial infections.
Isolation, identification of pathogenic microorganisms in cultures and subsequent antimicrobial susceptibility testing always assists in selecting appropriate antimicrobial agent and prevention of unnecessary complications.
After you have tried that, stain each of your live bacteria cultures using the following procedure: Once you have determined which of your live cultures is gram-negative and which is gram-positive, label them clearly and move on to the next part of the experiment.
One way to test bacteria susceptibility to antibiotics is to use the Kirby-Bauer or ‘disc diffusion’ method. What do your results tell you about the process of prescribing antibiotics?
Washing them before will minimize contamination of the bacteria cultures you are growing.
Washing them afterwards will minimize your exposure to harmful bacteria that may be growing in your cultures.
When finished experimenting, seal dishes in a plastic bag and dispose.
Cover accidental breaks or spills with bleach or alcohol for 10 minutes, then carefully sweep up, seal in a plastic bag, and discard.
