Each week, we spend one full day working in front of the flow hood doing lab work. This weekend, Saturday was agar day! We don’t usually do so many at one time but we were a bit behind…
Here’s Tara working in the kitchen-lab. Soon we’ll be in our own space!
We use jars instead of glass petri dishes sometimes. They are cheaper. However, they take up too much room in our pharmacy fridge! We are working on transferring most of our genetic material to glass petri dishes.
We finally counted how many strains we have in our fridge (almost). We have 35+ strains over 15+ species. (Ok, we didn’t count all of them… we have a few we still haven’t worked on yet!)
