Product Category Description:
Replicates microbial colonies for creating differential selection of colonies using antibiotics or metabolite supplements.
Tool is composed of a 10.2cm (4") diameter aluminum ring and a 5.5cm (25/32") high PVC cylinder. Locking ring secures a velveteen square to the cylinder just prior to replica plating. The petri dish carrying the colonies is inverted and lowered onto the velveteen, then lifted. Replication is made by applying fresh nutrient surfaces to the velveteen square with the culture.
