Tryptic Soy Agar
    #409353 - 09/30/01 06:21 PM (16 years, 10 months ago)

A friend bought Tryptic Soy Agar from a lab supply store and was wondering if this is suitable? The label reads
40 gm
Formula-Ingredients per LT.
Pancreatic Digest of Casein 15.0g
Papaic Digest of Soybean Meal 5.0g
Sodium Chloride 5.0g
Agar 15.0g
Also the directions are telling him to do make it in a pot. Would it be ok to boil in a jar instead so that it allows for easy pouring? And once prepared should this jar be P.C'd?

If this agar isn't good can someone point me in a direction to suitable agar and a suitable tek? Thankssss bunches

My guess is that TSA would work but it might be a bit heavy on the NaCl. The best and easiest way to mix agar is in a jar in the microwave. Stir well and zap it. Stir some more and zap it again until dissolved. Watch so it does not boil over.

TSA is mostly used for bacteria cultures i believe.. PDA is standard for fungus. Don't know if TSA would work tho.. Let me know as I have access to lots of that stuff.
