Provided with the right conditions (food, correct temperature, etc) microbes can grow very quickly.

According to the theory, why do you think clindamycin and metronidazole produce a different effect to penicillin?.

. Introduction/ Abstract In this lab report, I had to learn about the different methods that could be used to help control the growth of the microbes and the ways that I can test the.

INTRODUCTION Microorganisms are everywhere - a largely unseen world of activities that helped to create the biosphere and that continue to support the life processes on earth.

Before attempting the lab, you should make sure that you know the general methods that will be used and all of the basic mechanisms when.

Describe the principles of controlling the presence of microorganisms through sterilization and disinfection.

Disinfection; Antisepsis; Degerming; Sanitization; Physical Approaches for Controlling Microbial Growth; Chemical Approaches for Controlling Microbial Growth; t-test Statistical Analysis. . .

. An example of static control is the use of refrigeration to slow microbial growth in foods, thus increasing the storage or shelf life of the food item.

(a) A plate is inoculated with various antimicrobial discs.

Without adequate control methods, lab results may show contamination, food would spoil more quickly, water and beverages would be undrinkable and we would have less ability to prevent and treat infectious disease.

In this lab, you will learn about the various methods to help control microbe growth along with the way to test the effectiveness of those methods. In this lab, you will learn about the various methods to help control microbe growth along with the way to test the effectiveness of those methods.

.
Control of microbial growth (inhibiting or killing microbes) is accomplished through physical, chemical and chemotherapeutic agents.
.

Many methods of control seek to eliminate harmful microbes from.

Physical control utilizes heat, cold, radiation or mechanical removal in order to destroy microbes.

According to the theory, why do you think clindamycin and metronidazole produce a different effect to penicillin?. . Describe the principles of controlling the presence of microorganisms through sterilization and disinfection. Static measures are used when the organisms need not be killed, but when their growth must be slowed or stopped. explain the size of bacteria 2. In this scientific experiment, bacteria are scattered across.

This control is affected in two basic ways: (1) by.

Bacteria can express an enzyme capable of inactivating penicillin before it can bind to transpeptidase.
