Questions about Agar
    #2230608 - 01/09/04 10:24 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i have read the teks on how to use Agar,but i have a question.Besides setting up the mediumof malt or pda,ect..and water does Agar actually do anything else?I was just wondering because i thought that maybe if all it did was set the mix up,could Knox geletin be used?Thats what that does isnt it?

Gelatin used to be used so it can work, but you'll get better growth with agar and more chance of success.

Yeah -- I think it would be ok if you boiled it, but gelatin gets lumpy if you pressure cook it.
