Experiment proposed: firstly, i would obtain a clean Petri-dish with an agar in it. secondly, using a micropipette, add a few drops of penicillin solution on different areas of the agar.thirdly, using the toothpick, collect bacteria from fingernails and brush it on the agar plate using the streak method.fourthly,place the petri-dish into the incubator and leave it overnight.after a night,remove the petri-dish from the incubator.Coloured patches can be seen. However, the areas where penicillin was placed on becomes clear. Will it be possible for me to carry out this experiment? Are there steps that i could have possibly missed out? Are there other equipments that I must use to ensure the success of my experiment? My school labs have the common equipments used in pre-universities labs. Thank you for reading this question. Your response would be of great help to me. Thank you!
