1. Sowing of bacteria on a solid medium in a Petri dish or similar container; the making of a plate culture.
2. Application of a metal bar to keep the ends of a fractured bone in apposition.
3. Electrolytic deposition of a metal.


In bacteriology, inoculation of liquefiable, solid media (gelatin or agar) with microorganisms and pouring of medium into a shallow flat dish.


the process of using a plate as in orthopedic surgery and in bacteriology, the cultivation of bacteria on artificial media.

bone plating
a method of fracture fixation in which one or more metal plates are applied across the fracture and anchored, usually by screws, in the fragments.
replication plating
the transfer of cells from bacterial colonies on one plate to another plate, with a colony growing in the same position as in the original plate.

Patient discussion about plating

Q. Any ideas about why she leaves some food in her plate. Thank you for your visit. My daughter is 8 years old and she is a poor eater. She never wants to eat dinner even if it's her favorite dish. And then she picks it and an hour later she says that she feels hungry. She never completes her plate, always leaving a bit, no matter what we feed her. Should she be forced to eat dinner and if she doesn't, have only the dinner to eat later? Any ideas about why she leaves some food in her plate?

A. She trusts her mom. The most common reason to be like this is she knows that she will get something to eat later from her dear mom. While she shouldn't be forced to eat, she should learn that her main meal in the evening will be served at the dinner time.
Some other things that you might do to help deal with your picky eater include:
• Make sure that she isn't eating a big snack after school or filling up on juice, soda, or even milk before dinner.
• Offer her smaller portions so that there isn't as much left over on her plate.
• Don’t offer bribes or rewards for eating.
• Never talk about dieting, calories, and such, especially if she or other family members have problems with being overweight. Instead, talk about eating healthy.
• Consider not offering her anything else to eat if she misses dinner or just offer a small, healthy snack.

Mainly a visit to your Pediatrician to monitor her growth, development and eating habits would also be a good idea. Hug her now!

After drying, the samples were immersed in 2% sulfuric acid for 2-5 s, rinsed with water, and placed in the Ni plating bath.

The plating thickness was determined under a graduated-scale microscope after metallographic polishing.
After plating, the two pieces were placed on an aluminum jig and heated on a hot plate to the melting temperature of the solder (350-400 degC) to fill the 0.
Also, the AES analyses determined that the platings are primarily copper (80% for the thicker copper platings in Figure 4), so that the strong iron signals for the copper plating in Figure 3 are coming from the underlying iron surfaces (indicates Cu film less than 1 micron) and not from iron contamination of the copper platings.
Therefore, the elemental analyses in Figures 1- 4 of the lab and field samples determined that the submitted copper platings were copper nodules at initiation on the steel surface and were primarily copper as the platings increased in thickness (up to 100 nm or 0.
In addition to the copper platings, two powders removed from commercial supplies of refrigerant copper tubing were also submitted for analysis.
the copper platings created in the lab and field are similar in morphology and composition
They are ideal for plating into very deep recesses and onto complex shapes.
A flash plating of cyanide copper is followed by a rinse and sulphuric acid dip before plating in acid copper until the required thickness is achieved.
For example gold plating of components for better electrical properties or zinc plating of steel parts to improve corrosion resistance.
Plating is usually from the sulphate bath or in the case of high current densities the methane sulphonic acid (MSA) bath.
