Application

Agar is commonly employed in research for:
  • agar plates for microbiology, such as Tryptic soy broth or TSB Agar plates for bacterial cell culture
  • 50% Murashige-Skoog or MS medium (basal MS)for growing plant seedlings
  • micropropagation of Pistacia lentiscus or Lentisk, for shoot initiation

Features and Benefits

  • High-quality agar powder for general use in research
  • Suitable for microbiology applications to culture bacteria and other microorganisms
  • Suitable for plant cell culture for horticultural science and biotechnology
  • Easily prepare and autoclave for a solid or semi-solid media at 6 - 12g/L
