Nutrient Agar, Prepared Media Bottle, 125mL, plastic bottle

Item# BE-AGARNBT

This sterile liquid nutrient agar comes ready to use. Just heat, pour into petri dishes, and inoculate with whatever bacteria culture you choose. (Or use it to grow bacteria taken from your mouth or another surface.) There's enough nutrient agar in the bottle to cover ten 100mm dishes.

Nutrient agar is the best all-around choice for growing bacteria and other microbe cultures. Use it if you are unsure of either the bacteria type you are growing or the preferred culture media for your bacteria. Some more fastidious bacteria (those with complex nutrient requirements) prefer tryptic soy agar.

Major ingredients: water, agar, peptone, beef/yeast extract.

Difficult to melt! Review by
When I use this agar to make petri dishes, I do not have access to a microwave in my class. I have to melt the agar using a hot water bath. Because the agar is stored in a plastic bottle, it does not seem to get hot enough to melt to pour easily. I have used agar from other online stores that store the agar in glass bottles. This works better, in my experience. I might have to order from the other online store. :(
Easy to use Review by
I found this agar easy to use. It heats up well in the microwave and covers about ten Petri dishes. I have purchased it numerous times and definitely recommend it.
Very Good Quality Review by
Easy prep in microwave. Very high quality. Will purchase again.
Lab Quality! Review by
This agar is high quality lab-grade stuff that's very fun experimenting with. I can imagine how much fun I'd have making little bacteria colonies at home with this. Apart from that, it works well in clinical and forensic diagnosis, and the price is also very cheap compared to good ones in stores and other websites. Melting it takes a bit of time but overall outstanding job!

Worked Great! Review by
Ordered this for an experiment I did with our homeschool co-op group. Heated great in the microwave and bacteria grew nicely! Super easy to use.
