Can you give a bit more explenation?
I am not sure if I understand you.

I also dont understand how you get that "standard deviation plate counts to be 0.5 log" from the paper you attached.

If I understand you correct you mean that the 0,5 log deviation is adressed to the method, so you mean that plating bacteria always has a 0,5 log deviation because of the plating?
And you do mean 10^-0,5 X + 0,5 , right? A half log difference?

Right.

Use a inoculating turntable, and an Ultrasonic bath(Jewelry Cleaner) to disociate bateria from each other.
