Description

Product Description

LB-Agar Medium, Lennox is a Molecular Biology Certified Bacterial Growth Medium. It is the most widely used medium for the growth of bacteria. MP Biomedicals offers LB media in a variety of formats for convenience and ease of use. It is Luria-Bertani, Rich Medium for the growth of E. coli and certified for plasmid and other bacterial cultures in liquid medium. Agar is already included in this convenient formulation. MP Biomedicals offers LB Lennox media in an encapsulated format for convenience and ease of use.

Application Notes

LB Lennox Agar capsules is a nutritionally rich medium originally developed for growth and maintenance of E. coli strains. The ultimate in ease and convenience, LB Lennox Agar in a capsule form eliminates the waste, inaccuracies, and mess associated with weighing out bulk powder.The growth characteristics are the same as LB Lennox Agar powder. LB Lennox Agar Medium supports a luxurious growth of E. coli cells as tryptone and yeast extract supply essential growth factors that E. coli cells would otherwise have to synthesize. The medium also contains essential electrolytes for transport and osmotic balance, due to the NaCl component.

Personal Protective Equipment Personal Protective Equipment Respiratory protection: Breathing apparatus only if aerosol or dust is formed. Hand protection: Pvc or other plastic material gloves Skin and body protection: Usual safety precautions while handling the product will provide adequate protection against this potential effect. Eye protection: Safety glasses with side-shields Hygiene measures: Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.
pH Acceptable pH range is 7.0 ± 0.5 at 25 °C. Please note that the pH of LB Medium Lennox liquid increases as the temperature of the solution decreases.
Physical Appearance Capsules
Preparation Method Media Preparation: Reagents are tested and chosen for their ability to promote optimum growth of E. coli when combined in LB Lennox Agar Medium formulations. Chosen reagents are combined in the proper proportions according to the LB Lennox Agar formulation and thoroughly blended for a uniform distribution. A sample of the blended formulation is used to prepare agar medium. The combinations are mixed to dissolve components and then autoclaved at 121 °C for 15 minutes.
Presentation Jar
Product Overview LB-Agar medium, Lennox, a common bacterial growth medium for E.coli cells, is widely used in molecular biology. The two main components of LB media are Tryptone and Yeast Extract. Tryptone is used in a concentration of 10 gram / liter and Yeast Extract in a concentration of 5 gram / liter. LB Lennox is the moderate salt LB medium type with 5 gram /liter. LB Lennox Medium is also known as Lennox L-Broth. Agar is included in this convenient formulation. LB-Agar Lennox capsules have the same high quality formulation as LB-Agar Lennox powder with the added advantage of being in a capsule form, eliminating the need for weighing and handling. The growth characteristics are the same as LB-Agar Lennox powder.
Recommended Replacement For L-Broth Agar
