The purpose of the “Antibiotics” lab is to able to determine if the organisms ( Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis, Bacilis subtilis and Psedomonas aeruginosa ) are capable of growing and secreting any antibiotics. In addition, be able to properly conduct an antibiotic sensitivity test. After conducting this lab experiment, it showed was intermediate to Chloramphenicol, penicillin and tertracycline, and resistant to Enthromycin, Polymixin B and Streptomycin. Escherichia coli were resistant to Enthromycin, Polymixin B, Penicillin and Streptomycin, and sensitive to Chloramphenicol and Tetracycline. Bacilis subtilis was sensitive to Chloramphenicol, Tetracycline, Enthromycin, Tetracycline, resistant to Penicillin and intermediate to Polymixin B. Psedomonas aeruginosa was resistant to Chloramphenicol, Tetracycline, Enthromycin, Penicillin, intermediate to Polymixin B and sensitive to Streptomycin. The determination of whether the organism was resistant, intermediate or sensitive was based on the measurement of the zone of inhibition of growth. Typically the as the zone area off growth increased, it would be
