Agar question
    #2928031 - 07/26/04 09:27 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

What kind of nasties can grow on PDA? It would seem that all but 1 of my plates has contaminated with some white growth. Is there a way to sterilize the plates and save them? They are plastic petri dishes.

I don't care what the contamination is, I really only care about saving the dishes. These have nothing in them,They were pored and let cool. Then 24 hours later the growth showed up.

They're trash! If you had inoculated them and had clean plates to transfer (insolate) the any white you may have stood a chance. But since it's all contams you'll need to really take a look at your sterile culture technique which at the  moment is flawed! :frown: better luck next time. Do yourself a big favor don't even think about saving those plates or should I say expanding your collection of nasty molds! :wink: GL Cyber

So putting them in the microwave and nucking them for 30 sec. (To boil) will not cleanse them?

I knew I should have bought the glass ones. Then I could just PC them.

I was hoping I could save them. I have a limited number of dishes.
