Myco update for the Agar V 1.0 After intense heatwaves it seems that the heat tolerant lions mane was so aggressive it went to the reproductive stage bringing up mushrooms. This agar plate is a good sign for keeping genetics. Definitely going to do some tissue cultures on this plate to expand on more agar plates and save on culture slants #agar #agarplate #lionsmane #lionsmanemushroom #mycology #mycelium #mushroom #tissueculture

Agar plates 2.0, "Pasty Whytes Agar Tek" Hello everyone apologies for the lack of mycology updates but the high summer temperatures and fires in California made it difficult to get much work done. Very excited to share this with everyone! The benefits of using this method are the decreased chance of contamination to your agar cultures by enabling the user to sterile the agar and plate all at once while allowing to inject liquid culture with out exposure to pathogens. These plates are 1/4 cup in volume and made from a polypropylene 5 (PP5 ) plastic. Went with the target brand bc the lids can screw on and off compared to others that pop off. On each lid are 2, 1/4 inch drilled holes. One hole is filled with high temperature silicon red rtv gasket maker. The second hole is for gas exchange and is covered with 2 pieces of micropore tape which acts as the filter. To pressure cook and sterilize apply a piece of paper towel and a piece of aluminum foil the size of the container over the lid to prevent water from condensing and seeping into the agar. Pressure cook at 15 PSI for 45 minutes. #agar #agarplate #mycology #mushrooms

Cinnabar Polypore - Gorgeous Mycelium - Pycnoporus cinnabarinus ** A note on my cloning process for saprophytic(wood loving ) mushroom species. If any of you have tried to isolate a culture from a wild mushroom specimen, you may have noticed it can be notoriously difficult. The two main reasons for this are A ) theres innumerable wild contaminants(usually mold spores or yeasts ), which make it difficult to obtain clean samples on petri dish and B ) You can't really be sure of the genetics, so even if you manage to get a clean culture, it could be difficult to fruit in a controlled environment or may not provide a very good yield, if it does fruit. The only way to tell, is to grow it out and observe what the fruiting process will generate. My personal secret with cloning wild saprobic isolates, is to take a small chunk of the wood that has the mycelium present. I place the wood into a jar with a small amount of water and wait for the mycelium to form(like you see in the picture ). Once the clean mycelium is visible, pick the most prominent and healthy looking segment. Carefully, with dexterity, cut a tiny amount of mycelial tissue and dip into a shot glass filled with 50/50 water/peroxide for a few seconds. The oxidation will kill most contaminants and the now clean tissue can be placed on agar petri dishes to grow out. Once the mycelium has grown out on plate, you can then again, cut a tiny piece of clean tissue and place on a new plate. It can take several isolations on agar to obtain a clean culture, but at this point, you will have secured your genetics! The mycelium can now be grown in liquid culture or placed into a grain substrate. So thats it. Thats my wild saprobe cloning process, hopefully you will have the chance to try it out! Good luck. #mycelium #mycology #mycologysociety #pycnoporuscinnabarinus #polypore #saprobic #saprophyte #wildmushroom #cinnabarpolypore #wildmushrooms #allthemushroomhashtags #mushroom #mushroomsofinstagram #mushrooms #mushroomsofontario #mycologist #mushroomcultivation #growing #fungi #mushroomgrowers #foraging #labwork #mushroomculture #hyphae #fungus #petridish #agarplate #agar #nature #cultivating

Klebsiella Pneumonia Bacteria. 😮👩‍🔬🔬💊💉 Klebsiella Pneumonia is a Gram-negative, non motile, encapsulated, lactose-fermenting, facultative anaerobic, rod shaped bacterium. It appears as a mucoid lactose fermenter on MacConkey agar. It can be found in the normal Flora of the mouth, skin and intestines, it can cause destructive changes to human and animal lungs if aspirated. Specifically to the alveoli resulting in bloody, brownish, or yellow colored jelly like sputum. In the clinical setting, it is the most significant member of the genus Klebsiella of the Enterbacteriaceae. K. Oxytoca and K. Rhinoscleromatis have also been demonstrated in human clinical specimens. It naturally occurs in soil and about 30% of strains can be fix nitrogen in anaerobic conditions. As a fee living diaztroph, its nitrogen fixation system has been much studied and is of agricultural interest, as K. Pneumoniae has been demonstrated to increase crop yields in agricultural conditions. #scienceresearch #science #workday #agar #sciencerules #scientist #biology #lablife #bacterialculture #bacteriology #bacterial #bacterium #bacteria #bacteriagrowth #agarplate #micobiology #microbiologia #research #microbiologist #laboratorylife #labwork #instadaily #instascience #klebsiella #pneumonia #medicalresearch #agarart #proteobacteria #epidemiology #photography

Su questa piastra di agar MacConkey si può osservare la crescita a sinistra di Proteus mirabilis batterio gram negativo non fermentante il lattosio e a destra di Escherichia coli batterio gram negativo fermentante il lattosio. Agar MacConkey è un terreno selettivo per la crescita dei batteri gram negativi, contiene infatti cristalvioletto e sali biliari che inibiscono la crescita dei batteri gram positivi. Contiene inoltre il lattosio come fonte di carboidrati e il rosso neutro, un colorante che vira al rosso quando il pH del terreno scende al di sotto di 6,8. Di conseguenza, i batteri fermentanti il lattosio, producendo acidi che tenderanno ad abbassare il pH del terreno, avranno un colore tendente al rosa/rosso, mentre i batteri non fermentanti saranno incolori o trasparenti. #microbiology #microbiologia #microbiologist #microbiologie #bacteriology #bacteria #bacteriologia #bacteriologylab #staphylococcusaureus #staphylococcus #agarplate #petridishes #kirbybauer #pseudomonas #pseudomonasaeruginosa #proteus #escherichiacoli

Transfer day!🙌🏼 Cleaning up some plates, and shooting for a great culture from the King Trumpet I cloned from the farmers market in previous post. My Pink Oyster culture looked good already after cloning, but I made some transfers from them as well. I will be making liquid culture and isolated syringes for the first time this week with the Pink cultures! This way I can save this culture I have, and store it long term.😈 As the pink strain does not survive in the fridge.. #mycology #agarplate #labwork #petridish #culture #mycelium #fungi #kingtrumpet #kingtrumpetmushroom #pinkoyster #pinkoystermushrooms #kingtrumpetmycelium #transfers #funguy801 #funguy #strains #cultures

Wow, day one of the isolation project I have. Things are a bit rudimentary since everything is all on my own. The lab I work at was awesome and donated old equipment and procedure papers. This time around I made 3 solutions: one vitamin, one mineral, and one carbohydrate/oil feed. All of this was diluted with the agar prep water. I cooked this alone for around 3 hours before the solution cleared up and the excess ions dropped out. After filtration and autoclave, it was back to mixing agar into the hot water. When the mix was boiling, it was left for 5 minutes, then stirred with heat off. When it reached 47⁰C, I did another autoclave because I forgot to do that before. After the prep, I was back to melting and then into the pour. The final plates will be used to isolate strains off of the banana bread I made like 5 weeks ago, and hopefully I can get some plaque assays up. Wish me luck! #biology #chemistry #biochem #fungi #isolation #plaqueassay #agarplate #spores #sporophytes #gametophytes #homechem

⠀ ⠀ A tangible glimpse at how an ear infection manifests in the Microbiology Laboratory.⠀ ⠀ This is Pseudomonas aeruginosa on Chocolate Agar. This culture was isolated from the ear sample of a patient with a reoccurring ear infection. ⠀ ⠀ An external ear canal infection may be caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and result in “swimmer’s ear.” ⠀ ⠀ Chocolate Agar (CHOC ) or Chocolate Blood Agar (CBA ), is a nonselective, enriched growth medium used for isolation of pathogenic bacteria. It is a variant of the blood agar plate, containing red blood cells that have been lysed by slowly heating to 80°C. 🧫 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #capetown #microbiology #microbiologist #microorganisms #agarart #bacteria #pathogen #pseudomonasaerginosa #microbiologia #agarplate #science #travel #canvas #light #photography #livingart #health #earinfection #laboratory #microbiology_lab #photooftheday #beautiful #photography #chocolateagar #nerd

In this first video I thought I'd show you how to make agar plates at home, without have to renovate your kitchen into a lab. You can then use these plates to grow your very own yeast cultures but that will be a future video. I noticed that I missed some stuff that you need to make these so below is a complete list. Stuff you need to buy from a brewery store: - Petri dishes - Lab flask Stuff you probably have at home or can buy at the local grossery store: - 1 potatoe of at least 50 grams - Sugar (2% of the total potatoe dextrose solution ) - Agar agar (2% of the total potatoe dextrose solution ) - 2dl water - shreader - pot - steal strainer - coffee filter with holder (note: only if you need clearer plates, not used in this video ) - scale that shows hold grams, at a minimum - a candle (or other high temprature heat source, preferably a Benson burner ) - a clean towel - Clorine (or some other disinfectant )

Fenster zu im Labor Mit Frischluft ist es im Labor eher schlecht. Und das hat seinen Grund: bei offenem Fenster kommen zum Beispiel Pilzsporen ins Labor und die setzen sich dann mit Vorliebe auf die Platten und kontaminieren alles, was dann manchmal das ablesen erschwert. Dieses flauschige Exemplar ist schon bis zum Deckel herauf gewachsen, immerhin eine stolze Höhe von fast einem Zentimeter. Fast groß genug, dass es einen Namen verdient hätte. 😂 #lablife #esistsoflauschig #agarplate #petridish #keinefrischluftfürlaborratten
