2. N-Spreader and MacSpreader each remove a sterile Spreader from the Packet. You ʼ ll each use one (1) sterile Spreader for the entire Experiment (unless you screw-up). Remove the Spreaders from the Packet very carefully. V 3. Vortexer vortexes the 10 -7 Dilution Tube and positions this Tube so P Pipetter can transfer 100 μ l (P200 at 1 | 0 | 0) onto the Surface of N-Spreader’s “8” Nutrient Agar Plate. N A. N-Spreader places this “8” Nutrient Agar Plate in the Center of the Turntable, Bottom Side Down/Lid Side Up. B. N-Spreader lifts the Lid, slowly spins the Turntable and uses their Spreader to evenly spread this Sample across the Surface of their “8” Nutrient Agar Plate. Spread this Sample thoroughly, but expose the Surface of this Nutrient Agar Plate to the Air for as short a Time as possible. C. N-Spreader replaces the Lid and moves this Plate somewhere else. V 4. Meanwhile, Vortexer again vortexes the 10 -7 Dilution Tube and positions this P Tube so Pipetter can transfer 100 μ l (P200 at 1 | 0 | 0) onto the Surface of MacSpreader’s “8” MacConkey Agar Plate. Mac A. MacSpreader places this “8” MacConkey Agar Plate in the Center of the Turntable Bottom Side Down/Lid Side Up. B. MacSpreader lifts the Lid, slowly spins the Turntable and uses their Spreader to evenly spread this Sample across the Surface of their “8” MacConkey Agar Plate. Spread this Sample thoroughly, but expose the Surface of this MacConkey Agar Plate to the Air for as short a Time as possible. C. MacSpreader replaces the Lid and moves this Plate somewhere else. 5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 (Above) for each successive Pair of Nutrient Agar and MacConkey Agar Plates. 6. Place your Spreader in the “Microtiter Pippete Tips” Waste Beaker. 7. Tape your Nutrient Agar Plates together in two Stacks of 3 Plates each (or one Stack of 6) and incubate them at 30°C for 48 Hours . 8. Tape your MacConkey Agar Plates together in two Stacks of 3 Plates each (or one Stack of 6) and incubate them at 37°C for 24 Hours .

    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.
