This research tests antibacterial activity of binahong ethanol extract against Pseudomonas aeruginosa dan Staphylococcus aureus. Objective: To test the effectiveness of antibacterial activity of binahong ethanol extract against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. Design: True experimental Methods: Dilution methode followed with confirmation test by streaking in Nutrient Agar Plate. Concentrations tested are 10%, 5%, 2,5%, 1,25%, 0,625%, and 0,3125%.
