Question
Will dead bacteria react with a BART Test?
Summary
BART Test use on dead bacteria
Answer
The BART Test will only react with active bacteria.

If the bacteria is inactive, meaning the correct environment could allow the bacteria to become active, then the BART tester will react. If the bacteria is dead then they will not react.
