Bacteria resistance to antibiotics
With each generation, the inhibition zone grows smaller in diameter. Also, the higher the concentration of the antibiotic used, the bigger the diameter of the inhibition zone.
|Ampicillin concentration||The diameter if inhibition zone in Petri dish (mm)|
|1st generation||2nd generation||3rd generation||4th generation||5th generation|

Always follow laboratory safety guidelines and always practice sterile technique when handling microbes. Never have any food or drink at your workstation and always thoroughly wash your hands with disinfectant soap or alcohol before leaving your workstation. Always dispose of used material in a biohazard bag. If none are available, the bacteria should be destroyed with bleach before being disposed of.
