Bacterial work requires aseptic techniques to ensure optimal growth of desired organisms while preventing contamination from aerosolized particles.
Proteins and DNA concentrations can be measured using the Nanodrop. This instrument uses spectrophotometry to calculate sample concentrations.
In order to streak out bacterial stocks, the inoculation loops need to be sterilized via bunsen burner flames.
Streaked bacteria generates singular colonies that can be seen by the naked eye. These colonies can then be picked and grown to produced specific proteins.
