CellPro LB Agar is used in molecular genetic studies, as well as maintaining and propagating E. coli in molecular and microbiology procedures. The inclusion of casein peptone and yeast extract provides essential growth factors for the bacteria; such as nitrogen, sulfur, minerals, and vitamins. Sodium chloride provides essential electrolytes. Agar is used as a solidification agent.
To prepare, mix 40 g of the medium in 1 L of purified water until evenly dispersed. Heat with repeated stirring and boil for one minute to dissolve completely. Then, distribute and autoclave at 121.0⁰C for 15 minutes.
Store at room temperature, tightly sealed, and protect from moisture and light.
