  1. C: Complete inhibition of bacterial growth
  2. D+: More than 5 hours delay in bacterial growth to reach log phase compared to control (i.e. Detection time difference ≥5 hours)
  3. D: Less than 5 hours delay in bacterial growth to reach log phase compared to control (i.e. Detection time difference <5 hours)
  4. N: No effect of phage on bacterial growth
