This Course was designed for Students requiring Microbiology for Professional Schools (Dental School, Graduate School, Medical School, Pharmacy School, Veterinary School). MIC 101 is a Pre-Professional Course. Academic and Behavioral Standards in MIC 101 are Pre-Professional. What we ll cover in Today s Introduction: Welcome to MIC 101 Lab. Well spend quite a bit of Time going over Lab Safety (which is extremely important since well be working with real, live Bacteria) and then quite a bit of Time going over the Tools of the Trade (which are surprisingly easy to master). MIC 101 Emergency Procedures and Lab Safety (Pages 2-4) The First Order of Business is to cover all the Safety Rules to help ensure that your Time in Lab is as Productive and Positive as possible. This may well seem like too much for any mere Mortal to remember. It isnt. And to prove that, youll be tested over this Information in a couple of Weeks. Tools of the Trade (Pages 5-9) What are all those strange Potions and Implements on your Lab Bench? And whats all that Stuff in your Lab Drawer? Dont worry, well explain the Tools of the Trade, including all of those arcane Implements on your Bench Top and the mysterious Goodies in your assigned Lab Drawer.
