I keep telling myself I'm going to get into cloning, tissue samples, isolations but I've been more then satisfied with my yields off of clean MS syringes and they are so damn simple. I just ordered the Petri dishes and medium off of my vendor so I'm over due to learn it with these new cycle of grows.
Anyway just my experiences and two cents
Agar work is simple, but you would need a sab(or something similar, a bag), and prolly gloves/iso, spray the air, all that shit.
I am not about to buy the disposable petri dishes and toss each one after use, that's gay, and the glass ones are expensive for how many you use, so I use 1/2 pint wides. I "no pour", & sterilize em with the lid on(w/filter), but when I innoculate, instead of putting the lid, that you can't see through, back on and(in the sab) slide the just-nocced up jar into a fresh, sterile ziplock baggie, then seal it with a little bit of air trapped inside, & tighten the lid ring over the bag. This makes it so much easier to see the sectors straight on, rather than tipping, holding up to a light , i still could not see sectors very well.
(On Shroomery I read something like this)-People sometimes think they are seeing all the sectors, and they'll show a pic of what they call a monoculture, or single sector, and someone experienced will mark the pic to show the sectors they missed. They can be hard to spot, even straight on, in a petri dish, unless your experienced and know what to look fer.
