Perform a timeless scientific experiment, one of the foundational diagnostic methods of microbiology, by using agar and petri dishes to grow your own bacterial cultures!  A culture is a method of allowing microbial organisms to multiply by letting them reproduce under controlled laboratory conditions.  The petri dish is partially filled with warm liquid agar with a particular mix of nutrients, salts and amino acids (and sometimes antibiotics). After the agar hardens, the dish is ready to receive a microbe-laden sample. Empty petri dishes can also be used to observe plant germination or small animal behavior.

This kit includes 3 petri dishes (85mm in diameter) and 3 grams of agar, everything you need to get started growing your own bacterial cultures!  Also makes for a great jumping-off point for a variety of science fair experiments, or an excellent classroom activity for science teachers.

Features:

  • 3 petri dishes (85mm in diameter) and 3 grams of agar
  • Grown your own bacterial cultures
  • Great science fair project or classroom activity

5 star rating  Performed as expected
T.B. from Port Lavaca, TX
I purchased this for a 5th grade student's science fair project. We swabbed cellphones and grew bacteria from the swabs. Directions mentioned growth would appear after the 4th day and that is what happened!
