- Pre-Poured Sterile Agar Slants for Culture Storage (5 pack)
Pre-Poured Sterile Agar Slants for Culture Storage (5 pack)
This 5-pack of pre-poured agar slants is for long-term storage of cultures. Each slant contains approximately 10ml of pre-sterilized potato dextrose agar (PDA) or malt extract agar (MEA) in a 15ml polypropylene tube. Packs contain 5 slants.
Let your agar slant equilibrate to room temperature before use. Then, in a sterile environment, transfer mycelium from a plate into slant. Store in the refrigerator for up to a year.
Storing unused slants:
Store your unused slants upright in a cool location. In the absence of a refrigerator, store them in a cold room. Check for condensation from time to time. Condensation means there is a heat source driving out water from the agar, which will dry it out quickly. Use within 1 year of receipt.
