Identifying bacteria

  1. Good morning all.
    Some classes have done some swabs in the classroom and are now letting them grow in petri dishes. I was just wondering if any of you had pictures of different types of bacteria so that they could identify what they have grown.
    Many thanks
     
  2. That can be a tricky task without the chemical and morphology tests Katheryn. Given the environment where the swabs were taken I'd expect the majority to be enteric bacteria, Staphylococci and Aspergillus nidulans (black mould).:)
