The powdered agar will require preparation before it can be used as a growth media. Instructions are provided on how to turn it into the finished solution.

The pre-poured plates come 10 to a pack, and are contained in a sterilized and sealed plastic sleeve.  The dishes measure 100mm in diameter by 15mm deep, and the agar itself typically has a depth of 5-7mm.

The ready to pour bottle will need to be warmed and then poured into dishes before use.  Instructions are provided on how to do this.  The bottle itself is made of high density polyethylene (HDPE), and can fill roughly 15-20 100x15mm petri dishes.

MacConkey Agar is specific for the differentiation between lactose fermenting and non-fermenting organisms.  Organisms that are lactose fermenting will appear in colonies of a red to pink color, while those that are not lactose fermenting will appear in colorless colonies.

MacConkey Agar can also be used for Gram Negative and coliforms.

*Pre-poured agar is perishable, and must be refrigerated.  It is best used within 3-4 weeks of receiving it.

**Please be aware that because agar is perishable, it is a non-refundable item.
