Bacterial Quantification by Culture
Did you know that it’s possible to count bacteria with your naked eye? In this simulation, you will learn how to quantify bacteria using the process of serial dilution.
At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…
• Set up a serial dilution of a bacterial culture and describe why they are used.
• Calculate the cfu/ml from colonies counted on an agar plate, given the dilution factor and volume correction factor.
• Set up an experiment and interpret your results.
• Provide examples of why bacterial growth rates have to be measurable/ characterized
