Enrichment 5

Well I have now done the Enrichment Process for the 5th time now. I’m not gonna lie, I am begginning to get discouraged. I will check on it later today to see if I have any plaques.

Found a Possible Phage

We  might have found a phage! We have some nice clear round plaques. We need to further dilute our solution and complete the spot test, but we now have high hopes. I am very excited!

Phage Confirmed!

My phage has been confirmed! I cannot wait to learn more about it. I have worked very hard to find this phage, and I am excited to learn more. I believe this phage has bulls-eye plaques. I’ll research this topic soon.

More Dilutions

My -4 diluted phage titer assay still had too many plaques to count so I am further diluting. While this may set me back a tad, my phage is obviously very potent and that makes me think it will be easier to work with.

Partner Didn’t Invert Plates

My partner forgot to invert my plates before putting them into the 37 degree Celsius incubator. In order to ensure I did the correct procedure I repeated the process.

Spot Test Dilution

I did a sort of hybrid spot test and dilution. I diluted my samples and used the spot test to determine plaque differences. I have purified my plaque 3 times, but it looks different every time. I don’t quite understand it.
