Hey, these are helpful nod

Keep up the good job !!

Nicely done. Well thought out and really helpful. Could add 'Temperature - grows at 42 degrees' (or something along those lines) to Campylobacter.


  #15

Although there are a few points under Helicobacter's B already you could also add 'Breath test - C labelled urea in, ammonia out'.

Hope you don't mind me suggesting add-ons. smiling face
