Plaque NotesPhage Osiris has circular plaques ranging from 1 to 3 mm (both small and medium). After being incubated at 30 º C for 2 to 3 days, the plaques observed are clear, suggesting that the phage is lytic. After further incubation for another 2 to 3 days, it appears that a lighter ring forms around the smaller clear spot.
