Is the disk diffusion technique measuring bateriostatic or bactericidal activity?

Is diffusion an example of active transport?

Is diffusion an example of active transport?

No, diffusion is passive transport. Active transport would be when there are actual proteins and structures involved in the transportation of molecules/chemicals/etc.. A sure
What is a disk diffusion test?

What is a disk diffusion test?

  In the disk diffusion test (also called the Kirby Bauer test), disks containing an antimicrobial agent are placed on the surface of an agar plate containing a medium tha
What does diffusion and active transport have in common?

What does diffusion and active transport have in common?

They both transport ions, sugars, and salts across the membrane. Both facilitated diffusion and active transport use proteins as their means of transporting their materials t

What is active diffusion?

Active transport is the movement of a substance against its concentration gradient (from low to high concentration)
Facilitated diffusion and active transport?

Facilitated diffusion and active transport?

Facilitated diffusion = down concentration gradient, it just uses a carrier protein (doesn't need energy)  Active transport =goes UP concentration gradient with the help of a

Is facilitated diffusion is a active transport?

No, facilitated diffusion uses proteins channels to transport items across the cell membrane. Where active transport requires energy and moves items against their concentratio
