My swabbing devices do not seem to work.. every time that I go to swab something, it will not sawb.. I am not sure what the deal is, but I have tried hooking up a mouse to my laptop and using the internet at both my house and college.. and just about all the labs call for some kind of swabbing and asceptic transfer. Help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You appear to be having problems with aseptic transfer and, in particular, swabbing a plate. I recommend that you work through the first three exercises in the Basic Training Manual, which is installed with the software. That will orient you with using the software. As for swabbing specifically, you must be sure to choose an appropriate culture medium and use the correct tool (sterile swab). Generally, you will stab the inoculum with the swab and then move the swab over the plate until you see the swab lines appear. You do not click the mouse during the swab process.
