Thank you Jennyeap I am very grateful.
How difficult is it to perform a successful streaking of a colony to a new agar plate? That is a successful isolation. If I gently touch a colony with a loop and then move it to the new agar plate, how likely will it be to have only one kind of bacteria on the new agar plate? I mean roughly, how hard is it?
Should the new agar plate with the single colony be cultivated in an incubator before being sent off for 16s rrna? How long?
Would you send the agar plate for processing or should it be sent in any other type of container, or what ever word is appropriate to use? I don't know.
