Both negative and positive bacteria (Aeruginosa pseudomonas and Staphylococcus lentus) were utilized to study the effect of a hollow neodymium magnet on their bacterial growth. The two bacterial species were grown on separate agars (nutrient and MacConkey). The magnet's strength is 70 milliTesla. Plates with negative and positive bacteria were initially exposed to the magnet. We repeated the experiment with three magnets this time. It was shown that the North Pole of the used magnet affected the growth of negative bacteria more than it did that of South Pole bacteria, while positive bacteria were unaffected. In MacConkey agar, the magnet's magnetic field has a definite effect. Every outcome was contrasted with the outcomes obtained without the use of magnets, demonstrating that the use of three magnets increases the impact of the magnet.
