The top 5 tips to producing agar plates like an expert:
09/07/2018

Prepared media in the form of agar plates is used in all sorts of industries, from microbiology to beer manufacture, for a variety of applications. Across all industries that use these plates, a common debate endures: is it best to manufacture them in house, or buy in from an external supplier? At the 24th Annual Pharmig Conference last year, this debate was high on the agenda for discussion. The results indicate that many of the delegates are choosing to make their own media for reasons of cost, sterility and the short shelf life of specialist culture media.

Some argue that in-house production means on-demand media as and when it is needed, without the cost of buying in bulk or at the risk of running out, and all at a reduced cost. Others insist that external suppliers offer consistent quality product, with the best partners happy to ship small consignments. Crucially, this side also argues that any perceived costs saved by producing in-house are short lived and proven to be false economy.

Which side is right? Is external supply the only way to guarantee consistent quality? Or, with a few tips from the pros, can in-house production become a viable, cost effective part of any business that uses prepared agar plates?
