What is in Agar jelly plates?
If you add the blood to the media before it is cooled ie if the media is hot, you will make chocolate agar plates instead of blood agar plates.
Agar jelly is a type of jelly using the seaweed gelatin know as agar agar as a thickener. Usually it is used in Europe because it does not appeal to the American pallate for the fact that it does not melt in your mouth like gelatin or pectin.
agar is used for two different things ... the 1st thing is that agar is used for cooking and the 2nd reason is that agar is used to make agar jelly so if you put the agar jelly in a jar (with a lid!) you can wipe your hand on the jelly then put the lid on top then later on you will see microbes form on the agar. thank you for reading x
Normaly it is just labeled "Nutreiant Jelly" But it is really Agar Jelly http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agar
The jelly like substance is agar and is produced from seaweed. In the laboratory, the agar is placed in a Petri Dish.
Agar plates are dried before using dilution streak plate because it prevents movement of motile bacteria. You can also isolate bacteria better by drying agar plates beforehand.
larger the size, the smaller the surface area to volume ratio, hence the slower the rate of diffusion into the agar jelly :)
Incubating unopened agar plates provides a "control" to ensure that there was no unintended contamination to the experiment.
they are the controlled plates
Put agar jelly in a petri dish to sterilize the dish and then use something like a sterile inoculating loop to put the bacteria on the jelly. Then, seal the petri dish but make sure it is not airtight.
Agar jelly accelerates growth of bacteria, and it'll be bigger for us to see. It'll also be easier to find it under a microscope
Yes, you can streak some green algae of agar, but you have to known the nutrients you need to add to the agar. For instance Chlamydomonas reinhardtii can be grown on TAP plates, or on high salt plates.
Chocolate Agar, CNA Agar, Mac(Mackonkey) Agar, and BAP (Blood Agar Plates)
A nutrient media, agar, and 5-10% blood
before bacterial culture, the media containing agar i.e. solid agar should dry in the incubator, that is prewarm agar plate.
A blood agar plate is a nutrient agar plate that has blood added to it before pouring the plates.
the agar would kill the bacteria
blood and chocolate agar plates as well as in universities laboratory Nutrient agar plates are also provided
There are areas on the agar plate where no bacteria grow because that area was missed when the plate was streaked.
what organism grows black colonies on blood agar
Agar plate method is used to culture bacteria in lab .
Slants are better suited than agar plates, because they can be capped, preventing the agar and the culture from drying out. The cap also prevents airborne contaminants from entering the slant. Also, slants take up less storage space than an agar plate.
perhaps it is easier to streak that way, i mean when the agar is set and dry. .
i do not no find out your self
in the fridge
If agar plates were incubated for a month, the agar plate would be full of dying specimen. The nutrients would be depleted, then the specimen would start to die.
Agar plates have more surface room so colonies can be seen, and so can its morphology.
Do you mean "agar plates"? Agar agar is a seaweed that, when boiled, makes a product similar to gelatin. This stuff is edible, so vegans who liked jello can have it. It's used by boiling it in water, adding things to it, pouring it into petri dishes and letting it harden to use in making bacteria cultures. Some of the things that are added to it are beef broth--"nutrient agar"--and blood--"blood agar."
The temperature at which agar plates are incubated has nothing to do with agar. The temperature of 37 degrees celsius is used because it is the optimum temperature for most bacteria like E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, etc. Agar plates are incubated at lower temperatures also. One such example is the growth of yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and the plates are incubated at around 25 degree celsius. It all depends upon the optimum growth temperature of the… Read More
Agar Jelly is a common thing to use.

What is the importance of the incubation period with agar plates Why would you incubate two agar plates at different temperatures?
To test to see if the culture you are attempting to grow is affected by temperatures during the initial growth and incubation.
25- 30 degree

agar is a jelly type substance where nutrients can be stored for the bacteria to reproduce rapidly and culture. used as a solidification agent for solid media preparation
Cream coloured (on nutrient agar); Flat and circular with undulate margins.
to increase the surface area.
Bacteria and even some small plants like moss will grow on agar. Some need additional contents such as red blood cells and other will need additional elements. Agar plates may be formulated as either permissive, with the intent of allowing the growth of whatever organisms are present or selective, with the intent of only allowing growth a particular organisms. Often the answer will not included Legionella, but it is very selective and requires many additional… Read More

If you're adding antibiotics (especially ampicillin) you have to let the agar cool so that it doesn't destroy the antibiotics. If you're adding bacteria to the agar to make pour plates then you have to let it cool down so that the bacteria don't die.
What is the difference between himedia ready to use nutrient agar plate and nutrient agar plates prepared by dehydrated media?
Ready to use plates are more expensive because the main difference between the two is the amount of work you have to do. Already made plates and ready to go. Dehydrated you need to make the agar from scratch and pour into empty petri, and wait for it to solidify before you can use them.
Bacteria that produce H2S in the Agar will show black dots. like salmonella species
To avoid formation of moisture.
Myxobacteria, usually for moist foods.
because whatever is in there will die.
Tryptic (Trypticase) Soy Agar is the primary general purpose agar. It is often used as abase for the blood agars. Tryptic Soy Agar plates support growth of many semi-fastidious bacteria.
Get agar jelly and insert your penis into the culture.
Jell-o is not a recently invented substance. It is a recently invented word, which was registered as a trademark. This word was used to brand one make of jelly. The word jelly comes from the Middle English word gelly, which comes from the Latin gelu, 'frost'. The word gelly dates from "before 12th century" (Websters). Other suggested derivations for jelly (gelatin, gelatine, gelato) date from the 18th century or later. The best explanation for jelly… Read More
No, it will not. Methylene blue agar is used to identify gram negative bacteria, staphylococcus is gram positive.
