Frequently asked questions and Answers

It is recommended to place the agar-plates bottom up in the fridge.

One day prior to use, remove the foil and place the agar-plates in room temperature in order to avoid condensation. If there are condensation, tap the plate carefully to shake out the drops.

It is recommended that the agar plates are unwrapped from the foil and left for 24 hours at room temp. Hereby condensation evaporates the water and the plates are ready for use.
