Because fascidious microorganisms needs more time to grow. Its like sterility test incubation.

why we r incubating sterility for 14 days

dear dr.Gokay
what is the meaning of fascidious???

sorry my mistake, i mean fastidious

I have two reasons

  1. Propionibacterium acne bacteria will take long time to grow.
  2. We may have damaged microbes in sample they will take long time to repair for that reason also
