This morning I prepared agar plates that had been incubation to be struck by swabs. After instructing April and Clark in how to collect samples with the swab and strike the plates they each chose locations to take samples from.
After they took samples, the agar plates were struck with a z-shaped pattern. Once the plates were struck, they were placed back in the incubator at 27 degrees Celsius.
Dakota Clayton then followed the same process in the afternoon with the remaining crew members.
Altogether swab samples were taken from the stair handrail, a Hab mattress, the A/C filter, the interior of a helmet, the kitchen table, the door to the airlock leading to the greenhab, the rover controller, and the breadmaker.
