How often do you shake WBS?
    #3636470 - 01/16/05 10:32 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

How often do you guys shake your WBS jars during colonization? What are the effects of this? does it slow growth? speed it up? give a more even growth? I shook after inoculation and now I have some strong clumps forming... should I shake..?

ONCE @ around 15% colonization. Any more will SLOW process...IMHO

alright, I just decided to shake them all haha most were at at least 10%.... I've noticed WBS is taking forever to colonize, its been a full week and not much has colonized... anyones input? I guess they are twice the size of the old 1/2 pint jars I was using.. not really taking that into account..

You might have a bacterial contam if they haven't started back up again in a weeks time.

Wait a few more days...if nothing happens...open one jar and see if you smell a bad odor that doesn't smell like mushrooms...that will tell all.

Good luck!~

No I dont think its a contam at all I still see growth some jars just more then others... my dark dark home made GT syringes.. those jars are going fast, the purhcased B+ syringes where you couldnt see any spores are taking much longer... plus my incubation temps are rather low..

I shake once immediately after transfer/inoculation and then leave it alone. As agar said shaking too much can and will slow colonization.
