These are the first plates I’ve ever used. Went MSS to agar saw growth quickly. Only one out of 4 got contam working in a SAB, it was probably my fault! Very happy though!

Received these plates a few weeks ago and waited to write this review. I used 8/10 plates - After a week all 8 plates are showing great growth with no contamination at all. The two unused plates have also shown no sign of contamination. The black charcoal makes for a nice contrast with the mycelium. Plates are not shipped sealed individually but are shipped wrapped up together so as long as you properly sterilize everything before unwrapping you shouldn't have any issues. Great choice will order more.

Great!

Got these fast! I've used AGAR from ETSY sellers and these are by far better. Whatever they use in these really promotes the Rhizomorphic growth that I was not seeing with other plates, using the same source plates/samples. I would still suggest new AGAR users to use the regular colored plates at first but once you know what to look for, these are great!
