agar pouring apparatus?
    #2665015 - 05/11/04 09:25 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

What kind of bottle or apparatus do you guys use to pour your agar. I was thinking it would be easiest to pour the agar from the same bottle that you would sterilize it in to minimize risk of contam. I was thinking some kind of squirt bottle or something. Any ideas?

I use the bottle my agar comes in (i buy ready to pour sterilised agar) so that I dont have to sterlise the plates afterwards. Alternitavely you could use a conical flask to sterilise and pour the agar. I dont think a squirt bottle would be suitable for agar as it might get blocked.

I know the type of bottle you are talkin about, I see them on Ebay all the time and that was actually more like what i was looking for but I dont really know where I could find one, a flask is also a pretty decent idea.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

I have a 200ml bottle (or vial) with a screw cap. Picked it up at the health food store where they have herb extracts. I pour my plates thin (so I can see better through the MEA), I can do probably 10-12 or so plates with 150ml (I just did 10 last night with that much following the good 'ol peroxidated agar recipe here at the shroomery).
