Upset With Agar
    #3189750 - 09/28/04 02:18 AM (13 years, 27 days ago)


I ordered prepoured agar from mycosupply and this is what I get. I noticed when they first came that one seemed to have mold spots in it. I left all 10 in the sealed packaging and put in the fridge for 2 days. 2 days later I was ready to use them. Opened the packaging in my glovebox only to see 9 out of 10 full of contams. I put some spore solution on the good one for it to only contam after a couple more days. What a ripoff. I might try agar myself someday, but not for awhile. It wasn't a good first experience with agar. My advice to everyone, don't get this stuff from mycosupply.
*Edit* Lana from mycosupply contacted me and is willing to take care of my problem for me. I'm not going to try prepoured agar again, but I will give agar another shot. Thanks all !!!

What a shame. Contact them or post on the sponsers forum. Sponsers are usually good about this sort of thing..Looka like some nice trich...

it happens sometims... I had some from a non-sponsoring vender about
3 years ago that were worse, it was almost impossible to get replacements...

Luckily, you used one of our vendors, just let them know and they'll be
on top of it fast... Myco-Supply is one of the best!

I'd contact them and see what they say.  I'm sure they'll be willing to immediatly replace your agar.

People make mistakes.  I'd give them a chance to make things right and get pissy only if they don't or if they mess up again.

:mushroom2: Good luck!

That's all the same contam too.

I wouldn't be surprized if it was a bad batch of agar (with contam) rather than contam getting in durring shipping.

Better luck next time

Hi pshawny,
On behalf of Myco Supply I apologize.  You should have contacted me!!!  Sometimes the prepoured plates do contaminate, and we will either replace them, refund them or in some cases, I've consulted people on how to pour their own!

Regardless, I will be sure to remedy your situation.

Please check your PM's

If you, or anyone else ever has a problem with a product from Myco Supply, never be afraid to ask :smile:

Thank You,
Lana

Never tried "pre-poured" petris , let vendor know I'm sure they will help you out , in the mean time give your glove box a massive decontam sweep with bleach , and then again just before you use it again .
Do not give up on agar work just because of one failure . Nothing is more rewarding than learnig this process . Hell Cousin IT does his with no box and has aprox a 98% success rate onl all forms of agar work , most failures occur later .
Try making and pouring your own , nothing is better than fresh IMHO . SporeWorks has many types of agar in powder form that you make yourself .

Problem solved, mycosupply is sending me a 250g bottle of malt extract agar powder at no cost.  I will let you all know how my future agar adventures go.  Thanks everyone :smile:
