Question

Someone has left a tube of unlabeled (poor lab practice) cells on your lab bench. Using differential staining, how would you determine if the cells were from E. coli, beans, or ants? Your hypothesis is that cells are from ants. What stain would you use to differentiate between E. coli and ant cells? Explain and include your expected results.
