Do both the spread-plate and pour-plate method in a experiment produce similar bacterial counts or are they vastly different?
Both Spread-plate and pour plate method don't give the same results. Because in the case of spread plate method the inoculmn used for inoculation can't be spread in a exact vo…lume. A little inoculmn remains stick with the spreader after spreading. On the other hand, in pour plate method it doesn't happen. So mostly, through comparing the counts by both methods, less counts are obtained in spread plate method. I am Working as a Sr. Microbiologist in a Biotech company (MORE)
