1. Moist Heat Boiling kills most vegetative forms in 10 min Autoclave – steam under pressure Sterilization occurs at 15 psi, 121 O C for 15 min Pasteurization Some heat resistant bacteria survive higher temp, shorter exposure time 1. Dry heat Incineration Flaming dry heat sterilization Requires higher temp and longer exposure 170°C for 2 hours is equivalent to autoclaving

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
