Nutrient agar, sterile, 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.

Very easy to use and worked perfectly. I used the microwave method.

great product instructions. My 12 year old was able to follow the instructions and heat the agar in the microwave. The agar worked GREAT to see the bacteria growing.

I have ordered this on two occasions for two different classes. Each time the product has worked perfectly. I used the microwave method for heating. Be patient and 'swirl' the agar in the bottle for a full minute between microwave 'sessions' to help the clumps dissolve in full. If you jump the gate, you will have lumpy agar in the petri dishes.

This agar was very easy to use. I warmed it the microwave method. Have to pour quickly as it sets quickly. But you can always rehead it in the microwave.
