Bacteria counting and identification

AFTER you've done your research and concluded your experiments, it is time to prepare for the science fair. Ask specific questions about preparing for a science fair, including how to set up your display board, how to prepare a presentation, etc. (Please post questions about selecting a project or conducting your experiment by posting in the appropriate "area of science" forum.)

Bacteria counting and identification

Postby Dragon2014 » Thu Mar 27, 2014 12:48 pm

Hi Experts

I'm testing the quality of different brands ice cream.

1) is the dilution in water (bottle water) will be OK?
2) what it could be the good dilution to get a good bacteria count ? (e.g a 1g in 1 cup of water)
3) what could be an easy way to identify bacteria? e.g coli form bacteria

Thanks for your help
