Plastic petri dishes in PC?
    #6540328 - 02/07/07 02:59 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I keep getting green mold in my agar. Can I place my plastic petri dishes with agar in them in my PC for lets say 20-30 mins?

I think it would depend on the plastic it was made out of but I have tried it before with the ones I had, and they melted.

You're not supposed to take them out of the bag until you're ready to pour. You make the agar in a bottle, then pour it into the sterile dishes. Plastic petri dishes are not PC'able. If you pour the agar while it's hot, as it cools, it will draw in contaminants unless you're in a sterile room. Wait for it to cool almost to room temperature, then pour the plates and carefully slip them right back into the plastic tube they came out of. That will protect them until you inoculate and wrap with parafilm.
