Hey yall! 

 

Out of all the aspects of our lil hobby, I'd take working in front of a flowhood all day doing transfers, and cleaning up dirty stuff over any other task. So, I figured I'd throw a couple pics of some things I've been playing around with- AGAR PORN....

 

PLEASE! Add on if ya got em, and feel free to ask any questions. Here are a couple I'll answer before you ask: I buy my plates prepoured- I can get them for less than $1 each poured and parafilm for each plate. I buy once a month, a few hundred at a time, and I order about 2 weeks before I'm gonna need them, as the vendor makes them to order frequently. Super nice people if you need the info. Agar is not the only thing I use for innoculation- there are other faster ways I use as well (g2g mostly) but if you want guaranteed clean innoculant agar is the winner. I use 2-3 plates in a 1kg grain bag (because I can) and a whole one in a quart if I'm using quarts (mostly to start g2g) but unlike LC or even grain bags if I haven't opened the petri and I don't see any odd growth we're virtually guaranteed clean growth. So, if something is fucked up, I know it's either my grain prep or my cleanliness...image1.jpeg image0.jpeg image2.jpeg image4.jpeg image5.jpeg image7.jpeg image10.jpeg image12.jpeg  

 

I snuck a little bit of not the cleanest but super nice Deems I crystalized via evaporation instead of freezer separation....and a pic of too many cultures I have to do something with asap...

 

I posted #2 because I got that lil guy growing on the top! always a good sign if your isolates fruit on plates,

Thx my guy! was kinda hoping we could get an agar art thread going if anyone is game? I got a lot of agar projects floating around...I'd be down to throw some isolates in as a prize too if we can get a contest going??
