There is a difference between the two term (lawn culture and streak culture), if you used a loop for making new culture from primary culture you called that streaking method (like ABC streaking method), while if you used swab and streaked almost all the plate then, you can say (lawn culture)..

In conclusion to the above

1- streaking is used to purify the bacterial culture (i.e to make well isolated colony)

2- lawn culture is used for antibiotic sensitivity tests

They are both the same thing. I think you may be asking about a slide culture and a lawn culture (streak plate). Their methods differ.

Slide culture

  • No rupturing of structure
  • Directly remove coverslip and place it on a staning dye

Lawn culture

  • May cause rupturing of structure when you remove fungi structures from the agar plate (using tape)
  • Have to place it on the glass slide with a staining dye

If an inoculated plate had colonies between the streak lines what would you conclude?

It depends, if there is no growth or colony appearance on streak line and only it shows growth in b/w the streak line then it is certainly a contamination and if there are colonies on streak line and not ressemble with the streak culture then also it is a contamination but there can be a chance that colony appears due to some fault in streaking procedure and the inoculum drops between the streak line so it depends.

Can a Pure culture prepared from mixed broth or mixed agar slant?

To identify the pure culture the best method is to perform sub culturing and it can be done either by on another agar plate by streak plate method or by pour plate methodThe next is to perform staining which give the difference in morphology if the culture is not pure. But we should perform both the test and then should corelate them because none of them is individually 100% full proof


What is a streak plate?

A streak plate is a surface of unglazed ceramic, used to find the true color of a mineral specimen by drawing the specimen across it. The color of the resultant powder is referred to as the streak or streak color of a mineral.


What is the criteria for a good quality streak plate?

In scientific circles, the streak plate method is considered to be a rapid qualitative isolation method. To be effective, one must reduce the number of organisms in the inoculums by spreading a loop of culture over an agar plate. This ensures that individual cells are properly separated on the surface for the purpose of differentiating various species. The method is as follows: Using a sterile loop, microbes are initially transferred to the plate with one swipe. On the subsequent swipes, the loop is heated in the flame of a Bunsen burner to lessen the population of microbes being transmitted. Streak patterns are also done in via T-streak or by applying the loop to four quadrants of the plate.

Will diamond leave a streak on a streak plate?

Diamond will not leave a streak on a porcelain streak plate because diamond is harder than the streak plate. It will leave a scratch on the streak plate for the same reason.


What is the purpose of the plate?

A streak plate is used to determine the streak colour of a mineral. You take the mineral and scratch it against the streak plate, and it will create a coloured streak on the plate. The streak is not always the same colour as the mineral itself.


What happens if you rub the mineral across a streak plate but the mineral does not leave a streak?

The lack of a streak would indicate that the mineral is harder than the streak plate, or the color of the streak is the same as the color of the streak plate.
