Maintains viability for a wide variety of Micro-organisms



Grow the first organism on prepared media plate, and after 24 hours, remove the colonies of bacteria that appear on the plate with a loop. Transfer the loop containing the bacteria into the cryovial of Bactobank. Mix and let it stand for 10 SECONDS. Remove most of the broth and store the bacteria inside the cryovial at -20C. The bacteria can survive for years.


When the bacteria is needed, remove one bead from the cryovial and transfer onto the plate media.
