In this Science Buddies science project, you will test several disinfectants to see which ones work best to decontaminate the surface of a cutting board. You can customize this kit to include the nutrient agar plates, cotton balls, dissecting forceps, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.

Before beginning this project check the rules of your science fair as many science fairs prohibit the use of microorganisms that are not identified to species. Do NOT use this experiment if those rules exist in your science fair.

Germs are everywhere! We try and clean our home with disinfectants, but do we really get rid of all the germs? Find out with this "hands-on" experiment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Perfectly! We departed from the norm and swabbed high traffic areas in the school as our wild card sampling. Dramatic results, clearly illustrating the importance of just washing your hands and cleaning regularly!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nutrient Agar I purchased 3 packs of 10. Each pack had 1 or 2 broken tops; crushed where pieces of the plastic top were stuck in the agar. Fortunately I did not need more than were in great condition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Moldy Plates I'm glad that I only needed a few of the plates from this set because several of them had mold when they got to me, and seemed to pass it on to other plates the longer I waited to use them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great customer service! Mold on several plates. Sara answered all of my questions, made great suggestions, and guided me through the process very skillfully. The plates arrived quickly; however, when we opened the lids, we found mold on three of the ten plates. Happy with everything except the mold.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not sterile plates I bought these plates to save a few minutes before the lab. Unfortunately, the plates were contaminated and not sterile. 24/30 plates have growth on them.
