anti-biotics in agar culture?
« on: March 29, 2012, 02:28:58 AM »

Howdy,

got 3 different strains of spore prints (Golden Teacher, Mazatapec & Panaeolus) from Sporeworks. Problem is they were "inspected" by customs before being released to me. My concern is that these will be quite heavily contaminated spores now.

I can go off the PF tek & instead take option of plating out spores on Petri dishes and try get a reasonably pure culture from that but was wondering if I can introduce an antibiotic to take care of any nasty bacterial contamination. 

any ideas? Comments? Advice?

I am strongly against anti-biotics in the agar culture.
