Document Content and Description Below

1. Which germicide was the most effective? Was the same germicide most effective for bacteria isolated from the different sources? What could explain this finding? 10% bleach was most effective.

This could be because, it erodes quicklg if left uncapped, evaporating most of its alcohol leaving behind only water which is not strong enough to destroy bacteria.Lab 7 Microbial Control BIO250L 3. Were any bacteria from a specific source most resistant to the different germicides? If so, which source? The germicidal resistance possessed of the gram-negative bacteria and gram-positive bacteria was the same, except for aeruginosa which was more resistant to most disinfectants in its naturally occuring state than most cells subcultured on labaratory media. Also pseudomonas aeruginosa too exhibited greater resistance to some disinfectants. 4. Did the dry filter paper serve as a positive or negative control? Negative control. 5.
