These products have been tested for plant tissue culture applications to TO PLACE AN ORDER CONTACT YOUR DISTRIBUTOR: ensure the highest quality products. FEATURES & BENEFITS: Agar is a natural product, which is derived from various types of seaweed or kelp. Agar has long been used to solidify media for plant tissue culture. The type of agar or gelling agent used can influence the growth of the tissue in culture. Both purity and cost of the gelling agent are important factors in any research or production operation. PhytoTechnology Laboratories has expanded its line of gelling agents to allow greater selection in choosing the plant cell culture tested gelling agent for your particular requirement. Since agar is derived from a biological source, the properties of this product can vary from lot to lot. PhytoTechnology Laboratories screens every lot of agar prior to accepting it for use in plant tissue culture. We evaluate each lot for clarity, gel strength, biological growth of plants along with other physiochemical properties of the product. We suggest for critical research or production criteria, you may want to screen each lot prior to purchase. PhytoTechnology Laboratories will reserve material for your use for a period of up to six months. Most agar should be used at a concentration of five to twelve (5-12) grams per liter. Agar should be added slowly to the media while stirring or agitating. The pH of the media should be adjusted after the inclusion of agar. This is critical for proper gelling since the pH of the agar can vary from lot to lot. The agar gel generally becomes softer the more acidic the pH of the medium. Many types of agar will not properly gel at pH 5.0 or less. Listed in the following table are some criteria, which may help you select the appropriate product for your application.

It produces a clear, colorless high strength gel. Use GELRITE® at a concentration of 1.5 to 2.5 g/Liter. As a result of producing a clear high strength gel, GELRITE® helps aid in the detection of microbiological contaminants. To prevent clumping, add GELRITE® to a rapidly stirring culture medium, which is at room temperature. GELRITE® should gel at a temperature between 29-31 C.
