Any attempt at any level can't be satisfactorily completed without the support and guidance of learned people in my capstone project“Antimicrobial activity of different types of honey”. I would like to express my immense gratitude to my guide Dr. Akshay Garg for his constant support and motivation that has encouraged me to come up with this project. I also would like to thanks my group member who helped me in my project.
Honey is a traditional topical treatment for infected wounds. It can be effective on antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Several local brands of honey(Dabur) collected from different sources is used in this study. Also the honey is collected from various apiaries from Pathankot(Punjab) and Saharanpur (Up). The bacterial culture were taken from the laboratory of the Lovely professional University and was revived in nutrient broth media and then sub-cultured in nutrient agar media.The method used to test this antibiotic sensitivity of honey was done with the help of Kirby Bauer method .Marked variations were observed in the antibacterial activity of these honey samples.Bacterial species used were Bacillus subtilis ,E.coli., S.aureus and Burkholderia spp.The zone of inhibition produced against different bacteria using honey of different concentration are as follows: E.coli (pathankot sample): 100% = 2.6cm, 75%= 1.9cm, 50%= 1.7cm,and...
