Abstract

SUMMARY It was observed during a microdilution assay that oil destroyed the structural integrity of polystyrene wells. This is a significant observation, as using plastic materials with frankincense oil could compromise absorbance measures, influence microbial viability, and potentially increase migration from plastics into foods containing oil.
