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.
