Rated 3 out of 5 by from The instructions for bringing the agar to pouring conditions could have been clearer. I had to bring the water bath to a boil for quite sometime in order to get the agar to come to a full liquid. I hesitated to do this with the first 3 bottle because they were plastic. I finally did the last 2 bottles in boiling water, which still took over 30 minutes. It was time consuming but I am sure I save money by pouring my own plates.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but hard to portion out This product grew bacteria very successfully and did not have a lot of problems with contaminants, but it was really difficult to melt it and portion it out to my petri dishes. It was too much to heat at one time. When I tried to get out smaller portions to heat it was difficult to get portions out without exposing the medium to contaminants too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient and sterile. The 500 ml bottle of nutrient agar can easily be used to prepare 18 - 20 100x15 mm petri dishes. Pour in enough to cover the bottom of each dish (and not too much more), and you should end up with at least 18. Contrary to the directions, we had to heat up the container in a water bath for over an hour, and it still had solids in it. In the end, we microwaved it in 10-second increments, agitating it in between, until it was completely liquified. Do not pour into petri dishes until it is completely liquified! Our resulting petri dishes had no contamination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long-lasting agar I recently restocked our supply of this product after finding that our bottles had expired in Aug 2013. This was discovered after another teacher had used the expired agar and still saw excellent growth from her students' swabs. While I'm sure it isn't guaranteed to provide results past the expiration date, it is nice to know that we do have a long window to use the product. This is a very easy solution to prepare and sets up quickly. We have seen growth within a week without using an incubator. The students are always engaged in learning about bacteria growth after running this experiment.
