Plating for Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations
Posted 15 April 2010 - 10:00 AM
So I am a PhD student who needs some data from a previous student for my upcoming paper. Basically this former student performed MIC tests (E-test) but she did not do them in triplicates.
Is it really necessary to perform MIC testings in triplicates? I was told that all tests should be done in triplicates but then in this case would one need to select three separate colonies and test them? I personally do not see a point in performing triplicates from the same swab of the same colony.
Thanks so much
