Antibiotics in Action Kit



Introduce your students to antibiotics and a technique that tests microbes for antibiotic resistance. Students create a lawn of Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 and determine which antibiotics the microbe is susceptible to by looking for a lack of microbial growth around antibiotic-impregnated disks.

Halobacterium sp. NRC-1 is ideal for this application since it can only grow in high-salt conditions that virtually eliminate the possibility of creating antibiotic-resistant microbes pathogenic to humans.

Designed for 32 students working in pairs.
