Petri Dishes

glass Petri dishes

Petri dishes are shallow containers made of clear plastics (usually polycarbonate or polystyrene) or borosilicate glass and can come with or without a lid. They are commonly used in microbiology to culture and observe microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. The dishes provide a sterile environment for microorganisms to grow and are often filled with a nutrient-rich agar substrate that supports the growth of the microorganisms. They are also used for other applications including, cell culture and quality control testing within the food industry. They can be disposable or reusable, with reusable types able to withstand repeated sterilization procedures (wet or dry).
