Science Take-Out® Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria and Recycled Water
Biology Educational Materials
Microbiology Learning Activities
Antibiotics in wastewater may lead to multi drug-resistant bacteria.
- Available as a single kit with materials for 1 student or group
- Unassembled 10 pack for additional savings
- No additional equipment needed
Test for the presence of antibiotic resistance genes in the water leaving a wastewater treatment plant. Interpret graphics that illustrate how bacteria can become resistant to multiple antibiotics. Explain how the presence of antibiotics in wastewater might lead to the evolution of multi-drug resistant bacteria ('superbugs').
Caution: Choking hazard- small parts.
