As far as I remb correctly, bactericidal ab can kill bacteria in lag, log, stationary phases...as it can bind to the cell wall and make the cell burst. Bactericidal can even enter human cells and stop the bacteria before it gets out...

Bacteriostatics only slow down the growth of bacteria, so they act mostly in log phase.

Waiting for ur ans, bunny.
