General description

Miller′s LB is a highly-referenced microbial growth medium used for the cultivation of E. coli. This nutrient-rich microbial broth contains peptides, amino acids, water-soluble vitamins, and carbohydrates in a low-salt formulation. The addition of agar provides a solid medium for microbial growth.


LB Agar Ampicillin-100, Plates has been used to plate and incubate the mixture of thawed bacteria and plasmid solution for vimentin expression. It has also been used in the generation of the Trypanosoma brucei RNAi library.

Features and Benefits

Miller′s LB Agar plates provide:
  • Convenient, ready-to-use 10cm format
  • Standard formulation plus antibiotic
