5% sodium hypochloride, for 30 and 60 seconds, respectively, rinsed in sterile distilled water and transferred to Petri plates
containing selective medium for Fusarium, containing Peptone (15 g [L.
aureus: The raw data of steam autoclave utility glove controls and statistical analysis of used utility glove samples produced a wide variation of contamination levels ranging from under 20 CFUs to over 200 CFUs per Petri plate
Moreover, when placed on leaves that had been washed, the larvae wandered around the Petri plate
, but stopped wandering if given leaves infested with honeydew.
The increase in germination percentage was detected from 21 to 36 h; given the ideal conditions for germination in the Petri plates
, most seeds of all treatments eventually germinated, so that differences based on germination percentage disappeared by 72 h (at least 94% germination for all treatments at this time).
Even fungal spores in the dipping tank survived well; the survival rate (CFU/plate in Table 2) detected by the Petri plate
method was much lower than the number of spores counted under the microscope (spores/mL in Table 1).
I then burrowed a hole in the center of my carrot and placed it on a petri plate
All petri plates
were stored in one can in the dark at 20-25 [degrees]C; otherwise, the seeds were treated in the manner described above.
Twenty seeds were placed in each petri plate
having filter papers.
It was an uninvited guest in the petri plate
, isolated as laboratory contaminant (Table 1).
An aliquot of 100pL of this suspension was spread evenly across surface in each Petri plate
containing agar-water 2%.
2 mL of the suspension of test organism was taken in sterilized glass Petri plates
of 100 cm diameter and then the molted and cooled (45[degrees]C) NA medium was poured at the rate of 10 mL per Petri plate
and shaked gently.
Then each Petri plate
was divided into four equal quarters using a marker pen.
