To kill it?

To check whether it has a resistance?

Depends on what research you are doing or reading about.

If I am not mistaken, L. lactis is commenly used as a bacterial carrier for DNA delivery , ex. a resistance against chloramphenicol.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
