LAB REPORT 3Fomites09.11.2021Section ASIGNIFICANCEThe theoretical goal is to understand concepts of mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism, andhow to control the spread of bacteria throughout the environment using disinfection andsterilization techniques. The pragmatic goal in lab exercise #1 is to understand how effectivedisinfection is by utilizing 70% ethanol. For lab exercise #2, it was to understand how pathogensare transmitted throughout different surfaces. The hypothesis is if I use 70% ethanol sanitizer todisinfect my hands, then the amount of bacteria on my hands will decrease. The CDC must usethese types of experiments to provide reliable information on the effectiveness of differentdisinfectants/sterilization methods to protect health-care workers, patients, and all people frompathogens that could cause disease. The benefit of knowing which methods work or not work isthat contamination or spread of pathogens could be significantly lowered, ultimately loweringthe spread of disease.
