storing liquid medium
    #2062991 - 11/01/03 05:36 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am setting up a lab for myself and I want to make all my cultures and all my medium jars at once. I know it is possible to store my cultures without any harm done, but am I able to prepare and sterilize liquid medium jars (using malt extract and distilled water) and store them for later use? If I am able to store them, how would I go about doing so and how long would I be able to store them?

It's a better idea to make them fresh. They'll eventually die in the fridge. You could try freezing them, but the freezing might lyse the cells; adding DMSO might help this.

Sorry! Dimethyl-sulfoxide. It's a common laboratory reagent, or it can be ordered from http://www.dmso.com

People use it in about a 50/50 concentration with water when freezing cells to prevent ice crystals from forming, which can lyse cells really easily.
