gelatine instead of agar as a culture medium?
    #2358741 - 02/20/04 11:33 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I wonder if anyone has had any experience using gelatine instead of agar as a culture medium? I have never heard of this being mentioned and wondered what people thought, as it is quite easy to buy. I plan to try myself but was just curious if anyone has tried it before.

Plain old gelatine with no added nutes , will not work well .
Also remember gelatine is an animal byproduct , it is made from the hooves of goats and such .

Agar was developed to replace gelatin because gelatin is much harder to work with.

tried it once for fun, dont know what happened(possible contam) but it liquified in a day. agar is not digestable like gelatin is so gelatin will liquify if contaminated.

Thanks for your responses, I guess that if it worked people would already be doing it. I have doing some experiments with brown rice flower and water just wondered about adding some gelatine to make it thicker. At the moment I am trying out the water from boiled rye as a culture medium. The seems quite promising, the reason is, because the water is so dark its is easy to see white growth, I shall keep you posted.
