Prepared Starch Agar Media

Avg. Ratings: 4.0 (1 Review)
880927 WARD470180-802
This media can be used to determine if a microorganism is capable of hydrolyzing starch as a source of energy for growth.

  • Sterile, pre-prepared media; just inoculate and incubate.
  • When used with an iodine solution, works as a test for alpha-amylase.
After the organism is plated onto the starch agar plate, an organism tests positive for alpha-amylase when, in the presence of an iodine solution, a blue-black color forms in the medium.

Each bottle pours approximately 10 Petri dishes. Simply melt in a microwave oven, water bath or autoclave. Once cool enough to handle, pour into sterile Petri dish plates

These plates are great but I do wish the expiration were a bit longer as we like to order in bulk. Thank you for an excellent product that grows what I need it to grow and doesn't grow what I don't want it to! Great way to check for starch hydrolysis.
