HS009 – Continued Monitoring of L. tarentolae Growth

Submitted by Hannah Sparks

This was the third count of L. tarentolae. It was expected to have a count of about 1e8 parasites/mL. Once the count confirmed that they were at the expected stage we decided to make a new sample with a lower count. Using calculations, we determined the amount of L. tarentolae from the current sample that we had to add to new media in order to decrease the count 1e5 parasites/mL. A count was redone in order to confirm that the count was decreased to the right amount, and it confirmed that it was.
