Rated 3 out of 5 by from Performs as shown I have used this kit several times and it performs as advertised overall. The material provided are mostly adequate, except for the test tubes and NaCl provided for the serial dilution. The tubes are incompatible with the pipets provided due to their long length and make doing a serial dilution impossible. I had to sterilize and use some of my stock test tubes to perform this portion of the experiment. Substitution of shorter test tubes or longer pipets would greatly improve this part of the kit. Also, the NaCl packet contains 10 grams of salt, but serial dilution requires only 2.5 g. As I do not have a balance to weigh out 2.5 g I have had to estimate using the density of NaCl.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Struggle to poor plates The idea of this kit is awesome, but we could not get the agar to melt, and then stay melted in order to pour. I think it would be great if the kit came with the agar powder, and then directions to make the agar, since it is a techniques lab. Also the transfer pipettes did not reach far enough into the tube when making the serial dilution. Therefore we had to transfer the dilution into another tube to plate.
