500 mL:

  • TSB (Bacto) 15 g
  • dH2O 500 ml

1000 mL:

  • TSB (Bacto) 30 g
  • dH2O 1000 ml


Dissolve medium in water. Add 7.5 g Bacto agar to empty 1 L bottles, aliquot 500 ml of medium to each bottle. Label caps with “TSA” to avoid confusion. Immediately after autoclaving, swirl media to dissolve the melted agar. Tighten caps and place bottles in the water bath. Pour plates when the agar temperature is 50-60 ºC.
