One thought on “What types of bacteria re found on tester products at cosmetic stores?

  1. Appreciated that you tried to identify the type of bacteria rather than just counting as often the approach in similar projects. Really liked your ideas for future work, particularly further identification of bacteria through PCR. This presentation contains the best images and descriptions of all the posters I judged.
