United States Biological Corporation Bacteriological agar, 2.5kg
Manufacturer: United States Biological Corporation A09302.5KG
Bacteriological agar is a highly purified extract of select Gelidium marine algae, forming part of the cell wall, that gives excellent growth characteristics used in a wide variety of microbiological applications. Agar is a phycocolloid, a complex mixture of several sugar compounds that retains a gelatinous structure at RT after boiling. Bacteriological agar is purified by successive washings to remove or extensively reduce chemical contaminants, color and salts. After autoclaving, agar is light amber and free of particulates, solidifying into a clear, firm gel. Agar is suitable for all molecular biology applications (i.e. bacterial and phage growth, M13 and Lambda). It is superior to standard microbiology grade agars. Appearance: White to light tan, homogenous, free flowing powder. Solubility: Light tan, clear, complete after autoclaving Moisture: 15% Ash: 6% pH (1.5%, post autoclaving): 7.2 1.5 Gel Strength (1.5%): 600-1200g/cm2 Gel Point (1.5%): 34-38 C Heavy Metals.
