Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not up to the standards of other Carolina labs This is the only selective/differential media lab I could find that is available to high school students (necessary microbes for others cannot be purchased by high schools). However, unlike other Carolina labs, there is no pre-lab, procedure, post-lab questions to be copied and used by students. I found it difficult to instruct students on what to do and how to interrupt their results. I don't quite understand how they can call this a "detective kit" at all, seeing that there is no setup or story to back it up. Also, our citrate slants did not turn out right.
