I've been cataloging what I will need to make or buy to turn a chem lab into a microbiology lab. I know one thing used in college was an assortment of antibiotics for agar plates and LC. My fondness for pure harmine has resulted in a jar of pure harmaline•HCl and I know it has been demonstrated to have some function as an antibiotic.
Has anyone tried using harmaline in agar when cleaning up dirty spores/cultures? Is it at all useful in that regard or would it inhibit mycelium too?
I imagine the bright glow under blacklight might make seeing bacterial contams and fine mycelium easier, as a bonus.
