Product Description:

Enhance your mycological research and cultivation with our premium Malt Yeast Agar Plates with Activated Charcoal. Specially formulated to support robust mycelium growth and development, these plates offer an optimal environment for a variety of fungal species. The addition of activated charcoal helps in adsorbing impurities and toxins, promoting cleaner and healthier cultures. The black color from the charcoal creates a high contrast with the mycelium, which helps with genetic isolation. 

Key Features:

  • High-Quality Formula: Our malt yeast agar is enriched with essential nutrients to support vigorous mycelium growth.
  • Activated Charcoal Addition: The activated charcoal helps to remove impurities, ensuring cleaner cultures and reducing the risk of contamination.
  • High Contrast for Genetic Isolation: The black color from the charcoal provides high contrast, aiding in the identification and isolation of genetic variations.
  • Ready-to-Use: Pre-poured and pre-sterilized agar plates save you time and effort, allowing you to focus on your research and cultivation.
  • Consistent Results: Provides a stable and nutrient-rich medium that ensures reliable and repeatable outcomes.
  • Versatile Application: Suitable for culturing a wide range of fungi, including gourmet mushrooms and mycological research specimens.

Why Choose Malt Yeast Agar Plates with Activated Charcoal?

Our agar plates are designed for both professional mycologists and hobbyists, offering a high-quality and reliable medium for mushroom cultivation and research. The activated charcoal addition ensures a cleaner culture environment, enhancing the overall health and vigor of your fungi, while the high contrast from the charcoal assists in genetic isolation.

How to Use:

  1. Inoculation: Using sterile techniques, transfer a small piece of mycelium or spore suspension onto the agar surface.
  2. Incubation: Seal the plate and incubate it in a dark, warm environment suitable for the species being cultured.
  3. Observation: Monitor the growth of the mycelium regularly, ensuring optimal conditions are maintained.
  4. Transferring: Once the mycelium has sufficiently colonized the plate, it can be transferred to other media or used for further experimentation.

Ideal For:

  • Mycologists: Perfect for professional mycologists conducting research or culturing fungi.
  • Mushroom Growers: Ideal for hobbyists and commercial growers looking to start their mushroom cultures.
  • Educational Institutions: Great for educational purposes in mycology and biology labs.
