Student Bacteria Experiment Kit
The agar is shipped in a gel form - to make it ready for experiments the gel is heated in a microwave, poured into petri dishes, and allowed to harden for approximately 24 hours. Experiment growth results take approximately 48 hours to completely develop after swabbed samples are applied to the hardened agar.
Kit contains two 200mL bottles of Prepared Nutrient Agar, 20 Gamma Radiated Sterile Petri Dishes, 20 sterile swabs, and four detailed Experiment instruction sheets. The kit can be used for individual experiments, or is sufficient for use by four groups of up to 6 students. Bottles of Agar have a shelf life of approximately one year if kept in a cool location.
Recommended for grades 5 to 12.
