I am doing a science fair project on footware verses bacteria. I am swabbing the inside of different shoes out with a sterial applicator, then I put the sample on the dishes, let them incubate for 48 hours . I do know that (TSA) can produce both positive and negative results. But my problem is that I can't seem to find out any imformation on these dishes. I don't even know what I am suppose to be looking for. So, I figured if I know a little bit more about the petri dishes, what is in them, it would help me. Do you have any idea of what I should be looking for when it comes to bacteria and footware? Or what kind of bacteria these dishes can produce? I figure that it must be something different because of the different dishes. Can you help me? Thankyou,please write me back. Pretydona7@aol.com
