Applying a Simple Stain to a Bacterial Culture

Applying a Simple Stain to a Bacterial Culture

Applying a simple stain to a bacterial culture is a technique that is used for examining the size, shape, and arrangement of a specimen. It uses a dye to stain the cells, making them easier to see under a microscope.

In this experiment, we will demonstrate the steps for applying a simple stain to the bacterial organism, staphylococcus.
