    Great product and convenient

  • I like the convenience of this product when I am in a crunch and don't have time to make up a batch of agar from powder.
    Great Product

  • I've used this product each year now for several years. It is consistently great. I do use a microwave to heat it, the plastic bottle is thick so it would take some time if just using hot water. I tried using boiling water once and did get it to melt with a lot of patience. I like that it comes in a plastic bottle for easy transport and safe storage.
    good product

  • This was easy to use. Heats up easily in the microwave. I didn't try heating it on the stove. Covered all ten petri dishes and grew my bacteria well

      Nutrient Agar, Prepared Media Bottle, 125mL

      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.
