The tube was placed back in incubation for 96 more hours to observe any more positives. 2.10 Catalase Test A trypticase soy agar plate was used and after incubation, four drops of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide was added to the plate to flow over the bacterial growth. A presence of bubbling was observed. 2.11 Starch Hydrolysis A starch agar plate was inoculated with a streak of the unknown bacteria and then incubated. On the second day of incubation, the plate was removed from the incubator and placed over a hot plate heating Iodine solids.
DMF was used as a solvent and AIBN (0.5% w/w of total monomer) as free radical initiator .The reaction was carried out at 70±2° C for 6 hour with constant stirring. After completion of the process it was cooled to room temperature and resultant polymer solution was poured in the large amount of methanol with stirring when polymer precipitated out. It was filtered and washed with methanol. The polymer was purified by repeated precipitation using methanol from solution in DMF and then it dried. 2.3 Preparation of PS
Top agar was dispensed into 50ml test tubes and then autoclaved for 15 minutes at 121℃ as well. Stored the top agar at -5℃ refrigerator when it cooled down. Preheated top agar for 20 minutes to liquefy before use. The optimal dispense temperature for top agar was 45℃. 3.3.4 Preparation of CaCl2 solution The molecular weight of CaCl2 was 111 g/mole.
St. Johns Wort This herb is found in subtropical parts of North America, Europe, Asia, Russia, India, and China. This herbal medication is considered to be extremely beneficial against overweight conditions and psychic disorders (such as bipolar disorder, hypo manic disorder, etc.). More and more usage of St John's Work makes you healthy, vigorous and mentally fit. Oat Straw This herb is the component of calcium and magnesium.
We rinsed the penny in acetone and dried it with paper towel. Next, we determined the mass of the penny by placing it on a balance. The mass of the penny was 2.47 grams. Afterwards, we placed the penny in a beaker filled with 20 mL of 6 M HCl. In the end we put the beaker in the fume hood and allowed it to sit overnight.
This process was repeated for the all antibiotics with aseptic technique being used. The plate was incubate with lid up on the bookshelf at room temperature for 48 hours. After 48 hours, I observed different growth patterns around the disks. I measured the zone of inhibition of each antibiotic and document them on Microbiology task 3
The first of the four test was a Gram-stain. Once the experiment was completed the slide was then placed under a microscope where it was then categorized as Gram-negative bacilli. Its pink color when viewed through the microscope indicated that the test was Gram-negative and its rod shape indicated the morphology was bacilli. With these results the next test to be conducted was the citrate utilization test. A citrate tube was inoculated with P. aeruginosa and incubated at 37 degrees Celsius at 24 hours.
I let the alcohol flow on 45-degree angle slide within 15 seconds and wash it with water to remove colors on the surface. Lastly, the unknown is once again dyed with safranin for 1 minute then wash it off with water for the last time and dry it using bibulous paper. After experiment on microscope under oil immersion, I learned that my Unknown is gram positive. Under the lens, the bacteria appears in purple color. Its morphology is cocci arranged in cluster.
The samples were filtered by vacuum over pre-weighed and wetted glass fiber filters (24 mm GF/C; Whatman; Kent, UK). The samples on the filters were rinsed with 5 ml stop solution to remove non-specific, cell surface binding of 3H-FLC. The filters with fungal balls were either allowed to dry for 24-48 hr or were baked in a drying oven for 15 minutes at 95° C. Each dried filter containing fungal balls was then re-weighed to obtain the dry mass of each fungal sample. The filters were finally transferred to 5 mL scintillation vials containing 3 ml of scintillation cocktail (Ecoscint XR, National Diagnostics, Atlanta GA). Radioactivity associated with the fungal sample on each filter was measured in a liquid scintillation analyzer (Beckman Coulter, LS 6500 multipurpose scintillation
Plant material and extraction 300gm dried powder of seed was weighed & taken in a aspirator (2.5L). Before placing powders into the aspirator, the jar was washed properly with acetone and then dried. 800ml of solvent i.e. methanol was added gradually. The container with its content was sealed & kept for 20 days with occasional shaking & stirring.
