Incubation of bacteria

Living science: at an exhibition the Science Gallery in Ireland showed the mechanisms through which epidemic contagion occurs.

The incubation of bacteria in a petri dish impressively demonstrated, how dangerous a kiss can be! From April 17 to July 17, 2009, the Trinity College in Dublin presented the exhibition INFECTIOUS: STAY AWAY at its Science Gallery. Visitors could explore mechanisms of contagion and strategies of containment through science and art including a live epidemic simulation, an opportunity to have their DNA swabbed from their cheek and analysed and to get up close and intimate with a Petri dish as they cultivate the bacteria from their lips in the Kiss Culture experiment. Always nearby: Two Memmert incubators, where the bacteria colonies were incubated.

Marine Geology

Marine scientists dry out their samples of marine sediments in the cooled incubator ICP in the so-called wet laboratory on board the research ship Belgica.
