Preparation Of Temporary Cotton Plugs and Permanent Cotton Plugs

Microorganisms are everywhere in their the distribution. In any given environment, many microorganisms are present at any given time. It is difficult to identify a specific kind of microbe until we understand their ecological needs. For instance, anaerobic microbes do not require oxygen those that are aerobic require oxygen micro-aerophiles to have oxygen however, in a small amount. So, we require cotton plugs to provide an conditions that are aerobic and keep the growing culture uninvolved with unwanted microbes. Cotton plugs are made of cotton along with air pours. Air can flow through air pours, but not the bacteria that cause microbial contamination. They are fixed to the surface of cotton fibres , and prevent them from being able from getting into flasks, tubes, etc. Air aids in for the development of microorganisms within glass equipment.

Method for Balancing in Laboratory – Weight or Mass Measurement

The most frequent tasks in the microbiology area is the determination of the weight or mass of desired substances, chemicals. Another important aspect to be considered is the preservation of substances. Thus, the powders, as well as other granular or paste-like substances should Chamber not be placed directly on the platform for weighing of the balance. It is recommended that glazed paper or a small weigh boats is the best choice to weigh. It is recommended to use glazed papers if the material is 15 grams or less needs to be weighed. A the weigh boat pan or small beaker must be utilized if you are weighing a larger amount. Because of the the light weight of glazed papers its weight is subject to a minimal. If the weight is less of 1 gram an electronic balance is recommended. The larger amount (above 1 grams) is not to be considered using electronic balances.

Different Aseptic Techniques in Microbiology Laboratory

Because the aim of biologists is to cultivate microorganisms or eukaryotic cells with no introduction of any extraneous organisms aseptic methods are essential for ensuring that experiments are conducted with precision and accuracy. Always keep in mind that a totally safe working environment for scientists does not exist.

Moist Heat Sterilization Principle, Advantages, Disadvantages

Of all the options to sterilize (killing or eliminating all microorganisms, which includes the spores of bacterial growth) moist heat that is saturated steam with pressure has been the most frequently utilized and most reliable method. Moisture has more penetrating power than dry heat, and at a certain temperature, causes a greater reduction in the quantity of live microorganisms. Steam sterilization is safe cheap, low-cost, quickly microbicidal, as well as sporicidal. It quickly heats and penetrates into fabrics.
