Overview

Frogging a serial dilution onto solid media is an effective way to distinguish and compare viability under certain growth conditions, etc. The serial dilution helps to eliminate the possibility that a relatively high cell concentration could be misinterpreted as healthy growth, for example.

Materials

  • 96-well plate (flat bottom wells)
  • "Frogger"
  • Sterile petri dish about half-full of 95% ethanol
  • Sterile petri dish

Stock Solutions

Stock Solution 1

  • This is a very simple solution, so we only need a one line description of how to make it.

Stock Solution 2

This is a more involved solution, so we will describe how to make it in several steps:

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3

Protocol

  1. Step 1
  2. Step 2
  3. Step 3
