Yes.

The hypothesis is that it kills 99.9% of bacteria, so I would except no growth on the treatment group.

But, we can go to the lab and do colony counts if needed. The microbiology part is easy.

I was trying to do three things at once last night and was hoping that someone could get this easily.

I just need the sample size to figure out how many petri dishes to get.
