No you can't. Who wants to use agar these days anyway, get your LC game tight :hehehe:
Back when I still used agar I preferred good ol wedge to grain, even when using glad mini rounds. Not a fan of the drop tbh.




Thanks for that pointers brother. Having these feeling ive found some suitable local replacement for my containers to step-up my biopsy lc game. Will also try your modded lc jars in our moldy apartment. :rockon:

You should include glad mini rounds as an approved container

It's an approved container already :shrug: nothing I can say will make it any better. I'm just sharing what I do and I had good times with glad mini rounds as well when I started.

Besides, I'm the only poor fucker afaik that shelled out good money to have glad mini rounds imported from 'Merica. People from Europe need an alternative.

:thumbup:, I hear you, I've just seen a couple posts where people have linked this Tek asking where they can get containers locally in US.

Nice write-up btw. :rockon:

:coolpost:

Been using similar containers for a while now when doing no pours. Although I prefer actual petris and don't mind pouring.

Sick write up dude.

I really wish someone could find containers similar to these in the US so people who like this type of container could benefit as well in the US. The problem is that I've read several posts from people over a long period of time (including Locn9ne) that said they couldn't find nice deli containers in the US, they're usually much bigger or have characteristics that make them inappropriate.

Jhova posted the total shipped for him for a box of 500.

That's 0,161 USD shipped per container. People pay that for petris every time and I don't know the price of glad mini rounds there but I doubt it's that cheap per unit?

Solid tek. I'm a fan of the containers that are used and they weren't that expensive for me to ship. Overall, I paid about $40 for 200 containers. There was a bit of a learning curve on using them, but I'd say it was well worth it. For 500 it's about $80 from the looks of it, but I just wanted to get my feet wet before making the jump.

For a 23q presto I've found that I can fit about 12 containers per level, and can easily fit 50 containers into one cycle (haven't tried to put more yet). I've raised the trivet with foil, but I think in future cycles I'll use jar rings, trivet, jar rings, second trivet.

Here's a picture of some that I completed with these containers.


I can also confirm that the visibility is much better in person. When trying to take a picture of it the flash on the camera shows up too much. Haven't personally found a good way to photograph them otherwise.

On my containers I like to number the lid and container themselves because otherwise I'll forget which one goes to which.

Kickass tek Josex :super:

Edit: Using the double jar rings and trivet method I can comfortably fit 60 of these containers in a 23q presto (5 layers of 12).

What's the significance here? Why do we have to have monogamous lids?

Lids and cups that have had different numbers of pc cycles won't fit well. The lid might snap too loose or too tight on the cup, and by loose I mean dangerously loose, without being able to offer any kind of protection anymore. Imagine you just finished pouring and need to put the lids and they're all messed up, some close super tight, some just rest loosely on top, that's a bitch. The bevel on the cup where the lid goes is thin, unlike mini rounds for instance, so if the lid doesn't close tight you are guaranteed to see mold.
Same lid, same cup, and you'll never have this problem.

Thank you for this write up, Dam wish i saw this eailer...

I got some sqaureish containers, I left them overnight, etc and my filter (ontop) is asboultely drenched, It was 2 peices of micorpore and that is stuffed aslong with the paper towl that was stuck to it ontop...

Should i bother trying these containers? Just placing another peice of tape ontop, Let them dry out for a few hours in my sab & try them?

I carefully 1 by 1 opened them and poured out the excess water, was only a few drops some a good 10 or so, My agar looks like it didn't set as well as it could of aswell. I know what mistakes i have done now thanks to this writeup!!!

Honestly, Should i try inccoulate these containers? I am tempted to move onto pouring i think i'd enjoy it better

Glad it could be of help.
I'll be blunt man, those containers look terrible for agar, it's not only the shape they have and the huge size, but also those clamps and the short sides.

glad mini rounds are 2.50 usd which is 31.25 cents per container

500 x 31.25 is 156.25$ so the ones used in this tek are cheaper

I have to admit he's right in a sense though. If someone is just getting started with the hobby maybe it's not such a good idea to invest in a box of 500 containers, no matter how cheap they're individually, so getting what they can find locally sounds about right to get you started.
