I use 30% and fried my cultures to death first time round...
that's 0.6 ml / l for 30% folks

for cloning from wild, I prepare antibiotic media, peroxidated media, and also antibiotic + peroxidated media. I have the most success with the antibiotic stuff, but every so often I find a species that's easier to isolate on combination media. e.g. bird's nest fungi

Antibiotic + peroxidated media also seems to work quite well for cloning from rhizomorphs, such as you find growing in woodchip beds underneath colonies of P. cyanescens. Sometimes I quickly rinse the rhizomorph in dilute ethanol first.

My 17% goes in at .84ml per every 500ml.
Do you know of any antibiotic addatives I
can get hold of in the uk ? As that would
be real handy for strating spores from
wild picked mushrooms :cool:

Do antibiotic's stop bacteria ?

I do not know what the situation is like in the UK. I got gentamycin from my local doc ( but he's a relative ... :smirk: ). You might also be able to get it from a vet. I have heard that you can get antibiotics in some pet shops. They sell it in order to cure tropical fish. As far as I know gentamycin is the best since you can pressure cook it. Here is a link that describes some other antibiotics and their effect on bacterias.

Thank you, good link there :cool:
Now I just need to track some down, luckily theres a large farm shop with a big vet section near me, I'll try there first. Gentamycin seems too be the best alrounder.

I think it is 100 mg per liter. Have a look at this thread.

I add at 100mg/litre. I have several sources for gentamycin sulphate here in the UK, but it's quite an expensive substance - around ?140 for 5 grams of 60% purity = 50 litres of antibiotic agar media at ?2.80 each

I find that it never seems to eradicate bacteria at this concentration, just - when it works - reduces them to maneagable levels (little blobs as opposed to big splodges) so that it's generally much easier to isolate clones.

I've got a friend who uses novobiocin with success, but I can't remember if it's autoclavable. It is, however, much cheaper. As regards autoclavability, I don't think antibiotic carefully added to cooling media really constitutes a serious vector of contamination anyway, definitely not in my experience.

Gentamycin works by disabling part of the cell machinery (a ribosome protein) that makes other proteins. It does this in a range of organisms, including - according to my jar of it - Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, and mycoplasma, but - crucially - not basidiomycetes. Resistance is commonplace, so it is really just another tool and not a cure-all.

nice pics, good job :thumbup:
That is more than likely mycelium piss as i see it
far more in oysters than cubensis.
