  • The culture arrived on time and we had a lot of fun experimenting with the Bacteria Kit and Gram Stain Kit. We were able to complete all our tests within 2-3 days and the bacteria survived! I was impressed!

      Escherichia Coli Bacteria - Live Culture

      Study E. coli, the intestinal bacteria commonly used in labs, with this live culture. E. coli is a gram-negative faculative anaerobic bacteria.

      This safe K-12 strain of E. coli is commonly found in your intestine and is not the kind that causes food poisoning.

      Each culture comes in a test tube on agar media. These slant cultures are made with 5ml of agar that is rotated diagonally to provide the maximum surface area for the bacteria culture growth. The culture can be transferred with an inoculating needle. Each culture provides sufficient bacteria to streak 10-15 petri dishes, enough for a classroom of 30 students.

      Live cultures can be difficult to sustain. The culture will come with care instructions, but plan to use it within 1-2 days of arrival for best results. This item cannot be returned.

      Shipping Note: This item ships only to a street address in the contiguous 48 US states with Economy or Ground Service shipping. Specify a delivery date Wednesday through Friday, at least seven days after your order date. An additional $13 shipping charge applies to each delivery date.
