As a scientist, you need to check your methods, how many bacterial dishes did you prepare and how many did you carry the bacterial growth on. You need to have done more than 3 dishes to overcome he possibility of random error in your experiment. If readings are similar then your should be confident in your results. Check your method for any systematic errors.
