Pre-weighed supplemented malt extract agar, ready to mix with water and use! Will make 750mL of finished agar solution, enough for 20 standard petri dishes or approximately 20 1/2 pint mason jars if using a "no pour" technique. Liquid culture supplies are measured to 750mL of water.
Contains pre-measured quantities of: agar agar, light malt extract, yeast extract, and soy peptone. An excellent medium for culturing virtually all fungi.
Mix contents of all bags, dissolve in cold water, bring to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Sterilize at 15 PSI for 15-20 minutes in a bottle or other suitable vessel. Pour into dishes in a sterile environment or pour into jars with filtered lids and sterilize in the jars. Great for cloning wild mushrooms, cleaning up or isolating contaminated cultures, or expanding and preserving your existing cultures. The addition of soy peptone is beneficial for the growth of saprophytic fungi, which includes most cultivated edible mushrooms, while the yeast extract contains a variety of important nutrients.
NOTE: Antibiotic mixtures will be supplied with a small vial of gentamicin stock solution, which should be added to the agar before sterilization.
Liquid culture supplies should be added to 750mL water in a suitable glass jar, dissolved, and then autoclaved for 15-20 minutes but no longer.
Petri dishes or LC jars not included, it is recommended to obtain them pre-sterilized from a lab supply seller if not using a no-pour method in glass jars. I recommend the Celltreat brand (no affiliation), they can be found on eBay.
