Summary

Luria-Bertani Medium (aka L-Broth or LB Medium). (Bertani says LB really stands for lysogeny broth.) LB is a standard growth medium for a variety of bacteria and conditions.

Ingredients

  1. 10 g/L Bacto-tryptone
  2. 5 g/L yeast extract
  3. 5 g/L NaCl

For plates also add

  1. 15 g/L agar

See also: Silver: LB Liquid

Protocol

  1. Mix dry ingredients and add distilled water up to 1 Liter
  2. Pour into 2 L flask (or greater)
  3. Autoclave (liquid cycle)
    • 250°F, 22psi, 30 minutes

Notes: We do not pH medium when we make it on the fly. However, if it is really important, pH the medium to 7.0 with 5M NaOH (~200µL). Check with pH paper

For plates

  1. Mix dry ingredients and add distilled water up to less than 1 Liter
  2. After dissolved, add agar
  3. Pour into 2 L flask (or greater)
  4. Autoclave (liquid cycle)
    • 250°F, 22psi, 30 minutes
  5. Cool media down to 60-55C (uncomfortable but not painful)
  6. Add appropriate antibiotic
  7. Pour the solution on sterile (???) plates
  8. Let solidify about 1 h, wrap, label (name, date, additive)
  9. keep at 4°C
