Awesome. Would a microscope be useful or even practical for identifying possible contaminations on agar? Ive heard it wouldnt.

Hey Bodhi,

Look what I got in the mail today.  All because of your Pour Agar Tek.  :congrats:



I'm so pleased you recommended these Pyrex media bottles.  The marketing literature states that they can be used for storage as well as mixing and sampling. They include a one-piece autoclavable orange polypropylene plug seal GL45 threaded cap with a drip-free pouring ring.

I've used a sleeve of dishes to practice pouring. So far so good.  I will be pouring my first plates in the near future. 

Its also going to be my first time using my new AA921.



Thanks again. :thumbup:

I've taken a picture of the broken pressure regulator gauge and will be contacting the company as the PC was never used.  The styrofoam packing surrounding the gauge was cracked. 

I will not use the PC until I get a reply from the company.  The gauge itself is $20.00 on Amazon. 

However, don't want to pony up the money for a new one because I did not damage the gauge. 

Hopefully, the company will eat the cost and send me a new one.  Good eye Juiceh.

It's less about the bottle, there's 100s you could use. I do enough agar I got the bottle I like. Making a filter lid is unnecessary though

Quote:

sterilize your agar for 10-15m at 15PSI. once your PC is back at atmospheric pressure. open it up take your jars out. put them in 47ºC water bath. your agar jars are hotter than 47 so the water bath will warm up. once it cools back down to 47ºC then you're ready to pour.



I just want to add it's important to filter any solids out of your agar if you're using very short sterilization times. Those times are meant for liquids only. Heat is transfered through solids by conduction so if you have little undissolved chunks of something the center of the chunks are going take a little longer to heat up than the liquid they're in.

You guys use the cap when you PC? Is it PP5?



Yes, the cap is on(like a half turn loose) when sterilized.
