Growing Bacteria In Labs

  • Culture medium (agar) used as it's a source of energy and minerals 
  • Petri-dish and agar sterilised before use 
  • Inoculating loops used to transfer microorganisms
  • Lid of petri-dish should be sealed to stop microorganisms getting in but not fully sealed so it allows oxygen to still get in 
  • In schools they cannot store at above 25 degrees to prevent harmful bacteria growing
