Pack of four pre-poured and sterile malt extract agar petri dishes with media antibiotic. Poured in our sterile lab, these 100 x 15mm dishes are vacuumed sealed in packages of four. Easy to use in your sterile environment for clean tissue culturing. The light malt extract agar supports a wide variety of fungal tissue and is suitable for cloning, direct inoculation from culture in syringes, spore prints, etc.
Pre-poured petri dishes are also an excellent way to test air and surfaces for the presence of molds and bacteria. Open package and expose the surface of the petri dish to air flow from vents. Seal in plastic wrap and incubate at 75-80F and wait for growth. Test for the presence of molds on surfaces by swapping the surface with a clean q-tip and dabbing the tip onto the freshly exposed petri dish, incubate and wait... the resulting mold growth will indicate what is present in the tested environment. Many molds are easy to identify using readily available online images!
Best used fresh, refrigerate until use.
