Working with agar is generally considered more advanced and requires a sterile work environment. While a flowhood is the preferred way to ensure sterility, a simple still air box (SAB) can be just as effective. You can make a still air box easily by simply drilling 2 arm holes in a large, clear tote. A SAB is a low-cost way to avoid contamination when working with agar.

Storage: For best results, use plates as soon as possible after delivery. Store unused plates upright at room temperature and away from direct sunlight. Storing in the fridge will extend shelf life but can lead to condensation on the lid which reduces visibility.

Culture Storage: Store colonized plates upright in the refrigerator.

Condensation: Condensation may occur due to rapid changes in temperature. This does not increase the risk of contamination since our agar plates are completely sterile, but it is an inconvenience that reduces visibility. If it is cold outside when plates are delivered, we recommend placing plates in the fridge for an hour or two before moving them to room temperature.

Guarantee: Easy Shroom takes extra care when packaging agar plates so you receive high quality MEA plates ready to use. Plates should arrive in excellent condition and are guaranteed contaminant-free upon arrival. If there are any problems whatsoever when you receive your plates, just send us an email with details and pictures and we will send replacements.
