These are the results from our experiments in our lab. The ear petri is so beautiful, it reminds me of coral. This is a great starting point for us and I cant wait to have a closer look and start to look under the microscope at the range of textures and colours. I’d love to attempt to grow the ear bacteria on the red agar that Mark showed us in the lab to try and get some colour in here!! It’s interesting to see that the inside cheek is so clean and has so little bacteria – this is one of the swabs that I would have expected to harbour the most bacteria.
