and Testing Antibiotic Sensitivity
You arrive at work the next day and the Laboratory Manager explains your
tasks for the day. He asks you to carry out a 'Most Probable Number' test
on sample SL2004/3 (water) and then ask Max, the Senior Technician about
any further testing that might be required for that sample. Also, the
microorganism that you have identified in sample SL2004/4 (food) needs
to be tested for antibiotic sensitivity, as requested by the referring
doctor on the Laboratory Test Request form in Section 1.
There are 4 tasks you will be undertaking in this section.
1. Most Probable Number Test
2. Pour Plate Counting
3. Using a Counting Chamber
4. Other counting methods
5. Antibiotic sensitivity testing.
Complete each task in order, following the steps and instructions.
