Pill divider for agar
    #13853861 - 01/26/11 02:47 PM (10 years, 4 months ago)

So after trying this a few times I finally got this down! This is for cheap ass suckas! The dividers I found a Walgreens for $0.99 a piece. They're the weekly dividers and they're clear with the days on top (S, M, T, etc). I made a simple PDA and while it was hot I poured it into each slot. Close the slots and wrap in aluminum foil, then pc. I've gotten them up to 18 psi cuz I let the cooker run away from me, and there was no damage or warping to the plastic. Let them cool in the pc and when you take them out, squeeze the tops back down, as they sometimes open inside even with te aluminum foil. Unwrap them from aluminum foil, and wrap them in plastic wrap. Now the cool part! If you don't have a glove box, leave the plastic wrap on the divider and when you go to put your spores or tissue sample on it. If you're careful enough you can pop the lid and stretch the plastic wrap keeping it all sealed, wipe it with alcohol and stick your syringe through it! With tissue samples you can make a hole in the wrap when you open it and squeeze the tweezers/forceps through, exposing a minimal amount to air. Also with the plastic wrap you can label each slot individually and when you're done it's not on the plastic itself. $5 for 35 cells isn't bad and they're reusable as well.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

The pill boxes are kinda small, maybe 1"x1-1/2" but it's plenty enough for a personal supply. It's also easy if you've got a dirty culture to transfer right to the next one :smile: in the pic I've got an isolated strain of trich (I'm really proud of that haha) and a lion's mane culture next to it. The cells are 100% sealed off from each other so there's no worries of cross contamination.

Grocery stores? No.
Asian markets and local non-chain health stores.
Not grocery stores, not wal mart, not whole foods.

I can hook you up PJ, no worries bro.

I just get my agar at the grocery store, all the stores here sell stuff like that.

It works best with the clear pill dividers and if your pc is narrow you can always pc them upright then pour after they're sterile. Let me know if you're successful with it! I may make some of these for trade here in the next few weeks.

I would imagine so, seeing as you want to be able to see the culture through the container...I'm giving you :mushroom2::pinkshroom::supershroom::pinkshroom::mushroom2: because you just gave me an idea based on this...I'm only gonna post it up if it actually works but it should...

I've got the utmost confidence, I'm a pro at culturing bread molds and managed to make this work, anyone can! Thank you for the mushies too!!! If it doesn't work post anyways and we can troubleshoot it :laugh:

I found some awesome little "bead containers" today at a local huge market chain. $7 for a dozen i think, gonna pour some agar in those for culture give aways. figure they're sturdier than jewelry bags by a long shot and can be reused.
