    Arrived Alive

  • Bacteria was still alive when it arrived, was able to transfer it easily to nutrient broth and grow enough to use for several future labs. Thank you!! It did not arrive with instructions though, luckily I went on the website and found one of your videos instructing me NOT to incubate it, I otherwise would have.

      Staphylococcus Epidermidis Bacteria - Live Culture

      Staphylococcus epidermidis is a Gram positive, spherical-shaped non-pathogenic bacterium that is part of common human skin and mucous membrane flora.

      Each culture comes in a test tube on agar media. These slant cultures are made with 5ml of agar that is rotated diagonally to provide the maximum surface area for the bacteria culture growth. The culture can be transferred with an inoculating needle. Each culture provides sufficient bacteria to streak 10-15 petri dishes, enough for a classroom of 30 students.

      Live cultures can be difficult to sustain. The culture will come with care instructions, but plan to use it within 1-2 days of arrival for best results. This item cannot be returned.

      Shipping Note: This item ships only to a street address in the contiguous 48 US states with Economy or Ground Service shipping. Specify a delivery date Wednesday through Friday, at least seven days after your order date. An additional $13 shipping charge applies to each delivery date.
