Description

Pre-poured Sterile Water Agar Petri Dishes (WA) Plates with Parafilm

Uses: Ideal for wild mushroom and spore cloning, and isolating severe contamination cases.

Pros: Mycelium typically outgrows contaminants due to the fast growth rate, facilitating easier isolation.

Cons: Growth medium is very slow to moderate.

Capturing the unique genetics of each mushroom to harness its best traits is both simple and valuable. Whether you’ve discovered a wild mushroom or favor a specific strain, these dishes are an essential tool. WA serves as an effective medium for mushroom tissue propagation due to its low nutrient content, which minimizes the chances of competing contaminants thriving, while still allowing mushroom tissues to colonize effectively under proper conditions.

Additionally, this product serves as an excellent educational tool for mastering cloning techniques. Cloning mushrooms is often simpler than growing them from scratch, making it a great starting point for beginners. We recommend practicing with common supermarket varieties like Portobello or White Button mushrooms to develop cloning skills. Utilizing at least 5 WA plates can enhance the purification process and increase the likelihood of successful cloning.

Your purchase includes:

  • A selection of 10 WA Petri dishes.
  • 10x Alcohol wipes
  • 10x Pre-cut Parafilm strips
  • Detailed cloning instructions, including tips on selecting the best part of the mushroom flesh for successful cloning.

These plates should be stored at room temperature and only refrigerated once fully colonized.

About the Petri dish:

These dishes are constructed from clear polystyrene, ensuring visibility while being disposable and durable. They are easy to store and handle, with an anti-slip ring for added stability.

Agar Plate Features:

  • 90mm diameter
  • Guaranteed 100% contamination-free, thanks to laboratory-grade sterile procedures.
  • Ingredients: Agar-agar, water.
  • Pre-sealed to prevent contamination.

Agar-Agar: Extracted from various types of seaweed, such as gracilaria and gelidium, agar-agar contains no animal ingredients. Its unique gel properties and stability make it an ideal firming and thickening agent for Petri dish experiments.
