Agar plates are used to germinate spores, isolate mycelium away from contamination and to expand mycelium. Agar is a very nutritious gel that has been sterilized and then poured into petri dishes. These dishes are completely sterile to allow for mycelium to rapidly grow without contamination. 

Our agar is a mixture of agar-agar and dried malt extract (DME). We can also include a color to help in seeing growing mycelium. 

Working with agar is generally considered more advanced and requires a sterile environment to work in. However, a sterile environment could simply be an enclose clear tote (still air box or SAB). 

Due to high demand Agar plates may take 24-48 hours before they ship but most go out the next day. 

Please Note: Condensation may occur due to changes in temperature during shipping. Agar is a sterile gel that contains agar, nutrients and water. During shipping the water in the agar may evaporate and condense on the plastic. The condensation should not be seen as a contamination vector since the water itself is completely sterile.
