Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.

For a class of 30. Do those antibacterial hand soaps work as well as the advertisements promise? Are they as effective as the old standby soaps in killing the bacteria on our hands? Students collect bacteria from their hands and then test various hand soaps for their effectiveness in killing these bacteria. The exercise requires 3 days from setup to completion. Note: The soaps to be tested must be supplied by the instructor. With teacher instructions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs to be updated and have more added This product was probably more useful before the purge of antibiotic containing products from the marketplace. It was difficult to find enough different types of antibiotics to make the lab impactful. There is also NO student ready handout, NO discussion or context to give the student and NO analysis questions (i.e. you are going to be doing a lot of this legwork/prep yourself). That being said, that makes this kit essentially media, forceps and swabs, and some printer paper disks. Why is it $72? Where is the value? If it's in intellectual property, this kit falls flat on that as well. It could be really cool (Semmelweis and handwashing, the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria due to inappropriate use, etc.) but someone needs to put in the work to make it a true kit instead of what it is currently.
