Agar storage
    #4227604 - 05/27/05 08:02 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

If i pour 20 dishes, can i just store the agar in room temp for usage later? How long will they last? THis is of course with no culture on it. I don't really need 20 dishes, but once i open the sleeve i might as well do all 20 and store them because the dishes are sanitary right now.

I think agar would prefer to be stored pickled, or at least with a good bourbon buzz. Oh, sorry, we're not talking about the same agar,lol.

i keep my jars of solid agar at room temp, nothing negative has happened yet. i suppose you could keep plates at room temp but its risky. just make sure you seal them up tight and sterile. you wouldnt want 20 plates of nasty mold.

I read when looking to buy pre-made agar that some place will not ship internationally because refrigeration is required.

I always pour a whole sleeve at a time because once you remove them from the plastic sleeve, they're no longer sterile. Pour, then reinsert them back into the sleeve and seal it up. If you have a flow hood, make sure to inflate the plastic sleeve with air from the hood. I still make it a point to use them all within ten days or so.
