Agar question
    #2822290 - 06/23/04 10:36 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

When I see pictures posted of agar work The petri dish is covered with a plastic film. Between the bottom plate and the top. What is this plastic and where can I get it?

Not saran wrap...its called "parafilm" its basically just wax strips that can be stretched really well. I would assume that anywhere that sells petri dishes would have some.

If you dont wanna buy/find parafilm just buy polyethylene (clingfilm) at the grocery store.

What is all this? Honestly, do you really need a special tape specifically designed for petri dishes? I use black electrical tape. It stretches nicely to seal the gap, and it stays put...

Air exchange for a petri? Interesting. I never had a problem without it. I had a Hypsizygus ulmarius overincubate and it fully colonized the entire air space in the petri. The only time I have ever had evidence of stalling agar is with some slants with limited airspace... Sealing is my main priority as subtle temperature changes will expand and contract the air inside, sucking in unfiltered air. I just want it well sealed so they can be examined and handled without much worry. It works for me, $0.50 a roll...
