    The most common method of separating bacteria cell on agar surface to obtain isolated colonies is the streak method to inoculate Petri dish. It provides a simple and a raid method of diluting the sample by mechanical means. As the loop is stretched across the agar surface more and more bacteria are separated until the required bacteria are deposited on the agar. After inoculation, the area at the beginning of the streak pattern with show confluent growth while the area at the end of the pattern should show the discreet colonies.

    The Gram staining method is named after the Danish bacteriologist Hans Christian Gram (1853 --1938) who originally devised it in 1882 (but published in 1884), to discriminate between pneumococci and Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria in lung tissue. It is a differential staining method of differentiating bacterial species into two large groups (Gram-positive and Gram-negative) based on the chemical and physical properties of their cell walls. This reaction divides the eubacteria into
    two fundamental groups according to their stainability and is one of the basic foundations on which bacterial identification is built. Gram staining is not used to classify archaea, since these microorganisms give very variable responses.

    The hemocytometer was invented by Louis-Charles Malassez. The device is basically a special microscope slide consists of two chambers, each of which is divided into nine 1.0mm x 1.0mm large squares separated from one another by triple lines. The area of each is 1mm2. A cover glass is supported over the chambers at a height of 0.1mm. Thus the entire counting grid lies under a volume of 0.9 mm3 on one side. Cell suspensions are introduced under the cover glass. The hemocytometer is placed on the microscope stage and the cell suspension is counted.

  • Another Dead Microbiologist - The Coming Plague


    Master list of Dead Scientists and microbiologists

    ABC News
    September 22, 2009

    September 21, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A University of Chicago researcher died after being exposed to a strain of bacteria that causes plague. And Malcolm Casadaban's family wants answers.

    The Chicago Department of Public Health says there's no sign anyone else was exposed to the bacteria.

    The tragic irony is that Professor Casadaban had been trying to develop a vaccine so that thousands of people around the world wouldn't die a painful, ugly death from a bacterial infection related to the plague. But it was that bacterium that appears to have killed him

    We really thought he was so strong, we didn't see this coming at all, said Leigh Casadaban, daughter.

    Not only did they not see it coming, but sisters Leigh and Brooke Casadaban say their father never knew what killed him.

    It was just so much of a shock, even the time he was in the ER, from the moment he got accepted to the time he passed away. We had no idea, we didn't even get to say goodbye to him, said Brooke Casadaban.
    Malcom Casadaban was a professor of molecular genetics at the University of Chicago for 30 years.

    For the past eight years, his daughters say, he'd been working with a strain of bacteria called yersinia pestis, trying to develop a stronger vaccine for the plague, once the world's worst health scourge.

    The weakened strain he was using, however, isn't supposed to make healthy people sick.

    And that is the big mystery now for investigators with the Centers for Disease Control and the state and city public health departments who've been looking for clues at the U. of C. labs.

    Was it a change in the organism, something about the person infected that made him uniquely susceptible? We don't really know the answers yet, said John Easton, University of Chicago Medical Center.

    It was hurtful because we remember our father as very healthy. He rode his bike to work, never smoked, never drank, said Brooke Casadaban.
    Brooke and Leigh Casadaban say they're not satisfied with the answers they've been given so far.

    How did their father, who had flu-like symptoms, enter the hospital a week ago Sunday morning and die 12 hours later with no one suspecting that it could be related to the plague?

    Leigh, who is following in her father's footsteps, now attends her father's alma mater Massachusetts Institute of Technology, says it may be up to her to solve this.

    I plan to go to the lab to read his papers and notes and go and really understand what he was trying to do, said Leigh Casadaban.

    Leigh and Brooke say they've been told that their father is the first person in the Chicago area to die from this bacterium, an infection that is usually cured with antibiotics. They say they're not eager to file a lawsuit. But they are wondering now if someone at the hospital or the university should have been able to spot this before


  • Microbiology Dilution series demonstration


    Demonstration video showing how to perform a serial dilution on a liquid food sample (in this case raw unpasteurised milk). The raw milk sample is diluted down to 1/1000 in a sterile diluent (Ringers solution). 1ml samples of each dilution are then used to prepare 2 sets of pour plates. A 0.1ml sample from the 1/10 and the 1/100 dilutions is used to generate spread plates.

    For this method you require the following:
    Sterile 1ml pipettes
    A pipette pump
    Sterile agar plates (for pour plates)
    Poured agar plates (for spread plates)
    A spreader (glass or metal)
    A dish of lab ethanol
    Bunsen burner
    Glass Universal tubes with 9 ml of sterile diluent
    Molten agar medium (20ml plate count agar per Universal tube - kept at 48C until ready to pour)
