- Dissolve the medium properly by continuous stirring.
- The pH of the fluid medium is determined with a pH meter and adjusted if necessary by either dilute acid or alkali.
- Some media (or specific ingredients) that are heat-labile are sterilized by filtration.
- Heat the medium to dissolve it completely.
- Sterilize by autoclaving at 15 psi (at 121C) for about 15 minutes.
- Cool the medium to 45 -50C under laminar flow.
- The medium is dispensed into sterile petri- plates or tubes or flasks.
- Allow to set the poured media for inoculation of bacterial strains.
