Hi guys I need help with this clinical application for my microbiology class!

The effectiveness of sanitation procedures in hospitals is determined by sampling surfaces for bacteria. Samples can be taken by rubbing a sterile, moistened cotton swab on a surface and inoculation a nutrient agar plate or with a Rodac environment sampling plate. Te 67-mm plates are designed so that an agar medium can be overfilled, producing a dome -shaped surface that can be pressed onto a surface for sampling microbes. As the sanitation control-officer, you test each method to determine which you will use. What can you conclude from these results?
And then provided is a chart (attached)

Thanks guys!

See if this document helps.

Rodac plate would be more beneficial because it can pick up more bacteria directly from the source without using a swab and less plates are needed with Rodac than with swab plates.

If it does, mark as solved Slight Smile
