how to use a 10ul inoculating loop?
I need to use this loop to pick up bacteria from an agar plate and dilute it. Do I swipe over many colonies? pick up one colony? if I am suppose pick up one colony does that mean its just one bacteria and if I diluted it once and plated that , its just one bacteria that will grow?

Each colony started as a single bacterium. So if you pick up one colony, dilute it and plate it all the colonies you get are a mono-culture.
