Media Preparation

Media Preparation

The Media Preparation Facility serves to reduce the time and labor researchers must spend preparing reagents and growth media necessary for their various projects. Commonly used reagents such as Tris buffers and Luria broth are kept in stock to be used as needed by institute researchers. The facility prepares media used in larger volumes, such as for tissue culture and a variety of media plates poured to order.


The Media Preparation Facility uses the following equipment in its work:

  • Automated plate pourer for large plate orders
  • Level II Biosafety cabinet for tissue culture media preparation
