:confused: you said you had more bacterial growth after having had your hands washed - but how could this be the case if you washed them properly with handwash that lyses the bacteria, even if you have opened up the pores with warm water??

...and it's gonorrhea every time

Edit: i just read your "broken up" bit, but am still miffed as to how you could culture more from the bacterial debris.
i don't know either! that's why it was weird & notable.. but lots of people got the same result.

so the demostrators attributed it to breaking up the colonies - or the action of handwashing itself opening pores or something.

maybe you should henceforth dedicate your life to answering this important Q..? :p:

& lab partner had lots of dubious comments following that session..!

I used to have to set things to even numbers, e.g. volume at 20 not 19 or 21 and treadmill on 14.6 not 14.7.

Then I thought damn that's strange and stopped.

I think you'll find that its rather obsessive to be honest... that often is not necessary! (unless you work with cooked and uncooked meat of course... ) My point is theres hygiene and then theres just being silly... every 30 minutes is BEYOND silly IMO

Exactly!Bit of mold on some bread? Gobble it up or pick it off and eat the rest(which has just as much bacteria you just cant "see" it)
Sorry i'm gonna b narky - i'm revising Unit 4 biology (microbiology) - and i can't stop myself from pointing out that mould is a fungi not a bacterium!! :p: sorry!

but removing bacteria such as MRSA from your hands in hospital via handwashing is very important in containing infection (!)...why does it get rid of a lot of transferrable disease and still leave lots more bacteria from the pores which can be cultured? :confused:

and i think you should be the one to answer it, being that you brought it up :p:

*remembers not to shake Elles' hand in fear of uncovering lots of sperm cells seeping through the pores*

silly me.. i would try not saying anything on an internet forum, but it would make things rather dull.. :rolleyes: twas just a point of interest! because we didn't know why.. probably artefact or the useless soap available commercially..? (though the same one we used post handling all sorts of pathogens & blood..hmm.. :eek: )

& rest assured.. my -unwashed- hands didn't give rise to much! :p:
