    Pre-poured Sterile Petri Dishes

    Pre-poured Petri dishes are an essential tool for any mycologist. They provide a clean and sterile environment for fungi. By using pre-poured dishes, you can avoid contamination and ensure that your cultures are pure. With these plates, you will not need a flow hood, but a still air box is recommended at a minimum.

    Pre-poured sterile Petri dishes are available in packs of 11 & 22. The dish size is 100mm x 15mm. The dishes will have little to no condensation and sediment-free media. If you are in need of clean plates, look no further! Each petri dish is not individually wrapped but the plates are shipped in resealable bags. Pre-cut para-film can be purchased separately if needed.

    Petri dishes can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

    - Growing cultures

    - Germinating spores

    - Isolating strains
