Nutrient agar, sterile, 125ml

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.

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.
Easy to use! Review by
Great. Easy to use! No problems.
Perfect for class projects Review by
I have ordered different types of agar, including powdered and prepared. I prefer this one. This container is enough for about ten large Petri dishes, and is very easy to use. I have had successful cultures every time I have used it. It is the one agar prep I come back to again and again.
Easy to use Review by
