: Cathal Garvey: ''I created a protocol to cook up lab-quality growth media using only off-the-shelf ingredients, most or all of which should be available at a pharmacy and/or health store. The only ingredient not available in ready-to-use form is the peptone that most media call for; I include a recipe and super-easy instructions on how to make peptone from Soy (called Phytone) or Casein (similar to Tryptone) using the enzyme Bromelain, which is widely available as a digestive aid or as meat tenderiser and performs quite well at a variety of temperatures and pH conditions.'' and
