Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Kit We used this kit for a non-majors Biology class and it was a little difficult for them. It requires good pipetting skills and good sterile technique. It also requires that the students re-innoculate cultures every day for a week. That made it difficult for a class that has a lab period once a week. Overall the kit was well stocked. Cultures grew very well and the instructions were good.
