Good Evening Follow Microbiologists,

I am currently working on a project to determine the concentration of P.
acne on the skin before and after washing.  I have tried Rodac plates with
Reinforced Clostridial Agar but all my plates were TNTC.  I have also done
some swabbing with PBS but it is hard to get a known area without a
template that may get contaminant.  I also need to know if there is quick
and easy techniques for ID P.acne.  I have ordered the bacteriophage to it
but have not start that part yet.

If anyone knows techniques or has contacts I would much apprecipate it.

Thank you in advance,
