DESCRIPTION

Agar C: Appearance: White or light cream pH: 6.0-8.0 (1.5% solution) Molecular weight: N/A Agar C (Cat# G1253) is a technical grade agar, 150 mesh powder. It is most useful in applications where clarity is not required. It is suitable for inoculating, streaking or replica plating. Agar-C solidifies into a haze-free, firm-surface gel. Agar is a polysaccharide complex obtained through bleaching and hot water extraction of agarocytes from the red alga Rhodophyceae, found in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and in the Sea of Japan. The genera Gelidium, Acanthopeltis,Ceramium, Pterocladia and Gracilaria predominate in agar production. Agar is composed of about 70% agarose and 30% agaropectin.
