Antibiotics play a crucial role in the manipulation, screening and killing of bacteria in a range of biotechnology processes. This kit specifically teaches the basic principles of antibiotics, bacterial resistance and susceptibility. Students learn and understand the use of antibiotic resistance in screening for infectious diseases. Utilising a bacterial strain, students learn the effects of different antibiotics and visualise bacterial sensitivity and resistance to the supplied antibiotics. This method involves the use of filter paper discs impregnated with a specified concentration of antibiotics on the surface of an agar plate containing microbial cells. This kit will enable students to analyse the inhibitory effects of different antibiotics on selected bacterial cells and then determine which antibiotic is the most suitable to treat a bacterial infection.
