Plaque NotesWhen left to incubate for 48 hours, Delcarmen’s plaques are turbid, suggesting that the phage is temperate. However, when left to incubate for 120 hours, the plaques are clear with more defined edges, suggesting that the phage is actually lytic. The plaques are overall extremely small, approx. .5 mm across.
