Bacterial Fermentation Kit (with Perishables)

(in stock)


One method of identifying bacteria is to determine the biochemical pathways they utilize. The ability or inability of a bacterium to ferment carbohydrates helps to identify it. Students conduct biochemical tests for dextrose, lactose, and sucrose fermentation. This easy to perform activity requires 2 class periods and some basic training in microbiology. Kit includes enough materials for a class of 30. Perishable material included.

For Educational Use Only. All orders are subject to Carolina’s Terms and Conditions
