The bacteria used in the experiment are Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Salmonella pneumonia. These all bacteria will be culture in the nutrient broth.

The first stage is making Nutrient Broth. Weigh out 5.8 grams of nutrient broth powder. Dissolve completely the nutrient broth powder in beaker containing 200 ml of distilled or the deionise water. Then the mixture is transfers to the vials. Those vials are autoclave and sterilise at 1 atmosphere pressure in the temperature of 121 ℃ within 15 minutes. The nutrient Broth vials are inoculate with bacteria. The 200-600 µl of bacteria are the amount of bacteria that is will inoculate into broth. These all vials then incubate for 16 to 20

Weigh out 16.80 grams of agar nutrient powder. Then add and dissolve agar nutrient powder in conical flask containing 600 ml of the deionise water. Both these flask are autoclave and sterilise at temperature of 121 ℃ about 20 minutes at 1 atmosphere pressure. After the autoclave is done for these flask containing the agar nutrient, it will be let cool to 50 ℃. The mixture is swirl throughly to mix agar and nutrients. Then the nutrient agar are pour and fill 2/3 full roughly 25-35 ml per petri plate and allowed to solidify for 10 to 15 minutes. Use the spreader to uniformly spread the bacteria.

The next stage is the preparation of extracts. In this experiment which using the disk diffusion technique. This experiment use Calophyllum teysmanii, Calophyllum Andersonii and Calophyllum Canum extract and their pure compounds. Each of extracts and theirs pure compunds will weigh out 0.035 grams and will be dissolve with the 96% of ethanol. The disk was soak into the extract and then placed on the nutrient agar prepared. Then all the petri dish are placed in the incubator. The diameter of the ring appears on the nutrient agar was measured to determine the antimicrobial activity of each plant extract after 16 to 20

    Next reflame the loop, then return to the TSA turning it at 90 degree angle while streaking quadrant two dragging some of the substance from quadrant one. Follow the same steps until all three quadrants are completed, but avoid entering quadrant one only take from quadrant two. The purpose of the streak plate method is to produce isolated colonies of an organism. The TSA plate was incubated for approximately 48 hours at 37 degrees simply to grow bacteria. After returning back to the laboratory and noticing growth on the TSA plate the same streak plate method was applied to the MacConkey agar and the Mannitol salt agar.…

    After being given the broth, using sterile methods I streaked a TSA plate using the quadrant method with the given broth, in hope to grow the bacteria in isolated colonies. TSA plates are a growth media that is used for the general growth of bacteria needed for culturing. It works well because the media is nonselective…

    For the culture media tests, synthetic medium, tryptic soy broth (TSB), SF medium, MacConkey agar, and nutrient agar and glucose were used to detect if specific organisms would grow on each media. Synthetic medium is defined media and the contents are exactly known. A positive result would be if one could see cells within the medium after incubation, and means that the the media provides all the nutrients the organism needs to grow. A negative result would be a clear medium without physical signs of growth, and means that the organism requires supplementation. TSB is a complex medium in which the exact chemical composition is unknown.…

    SIM test then performed using inoculating needle in semi-solid media contains casein, amino acids, iron-contain compound and sulfur in form of sodium thiosulfate. Inoculated by stabbing technique and incubated for 24 hours, if the organism could reduce sulfur, a black color would be seen. To test for indole production, four or five drops of Kovak’s reagent was added into the cultured, a red color indicated a positive result. Last was to test for motility , if cloudiness was seen away from the stab line, then motility was…

    Oral Microbiome 10: Reflection 3 One a daily basis the human mouth can come in contact with many different materials and organisms. “The human mouth is home to billions of individual microorganisms, including viruses, protozoa, fungi, archaea, and bacteria” (University of Minnesota Department of Biology Teaching and Learning, 2016, p. 21). In specific, during this lab we are looking at Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) and Lactobacilli. In studies, it has been shown that yogurt has helped reduced the amounts of bacteria present in a person’s mouth (Cildir et al., 2009). This could mean that other types of food, maybe even food related to yogurt such as dairy, could help reduce the amount of bacteria present as well.…

    In addition, the morphology and arrangement was detected when viewing the gram stain on my bacteria. After knowing the shape and differentiating my two bacteria form Gram positive and negative, an isolation streak method was utilized to isolate the two different bacteria. This was achieved by first, obtaining a small amount of bacteria on the loop and making a first quadrant on the TSI agar plate. Second, with a sterile loop a second quadrant was made. Lastly, again with a sterile loop a third quadrant was achieved.…

    To identify unknown bacteria is crucial, especially in cases where a pathogenic infection were to occur. If we were not able to identify bacteria, infections would spread uncontrollably as there would be no way to know what treatment is necessary to successfully put an end to them. The ultimate purpose of this experiment is to be able to practice identifying unknown bacteria under a series of tests, to further familiarize ourselves with the characteristics of certain bacteria and how they react.…

    On the third day, I put the bacteria that were in the broth tube on differential media. I chose to put the bacteria on EMB and Pseudo P plate, because I believed that the bacteria was either Escherichia coli or Pseudomonas aeruginosa, due to the shape and the fact that the mystery bacteria was gram negative. I also did a gram stain and the bacteria remained pink and bacillus or rod shaped. On the fourth day, I was able to observe the differential media. I noticed that on the Pseudo P plate the bacteria was a yellow color and on the EMB plate there was a small tint of metallic green color.…
