About This Simulation
In the Bacterial Isolation simulation, you will investigate the cause of a contamination of poultry meat by a dangerous bacteria strain that is resistant to common antibiotics. After taking samples from the chicken farm, you will need to work in the virtual laboratory to isolate single colonies of the deadly bacteria among a variety of different species. To do so you will learn how to work under sterile conditions, and you will be able to practice and perfect your plate streaking technique. Will you be able to successfully isolate the dangerous bacterial strain?
