Description

Other Notes

An agar substitute produced from a bacterial fermentation composed of glucuronic acid, rhamnose and glucose. It produces a clear, colorless, high strength gel which aids in detection of microbial contamination.

Reconstitution

To prevent clumping, add slowly to rapidly stirring medium prior to heating.

Application

Phytagel is intended for use in place of agar and other gelling agent for plant tissue culture. Phytagel has been shown to be a superior substitute for tissue-culture-grade agar in the micropropagation of banana plantlets.
