The End Zone: Measuring Antimicrobial Effectiveness with Zones of Inhibition
In this Science Buddies science project, you will measure the effectiveness of different antimicrobial agents by measuring zones of inhibition on bacterial culture plates. You can customize this kit to include the nutrient agar plates, living K-12 E. coli, dissecting forceps, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.
