+ with or without venting lugs
+ Good stackability
+ various sizes & diameters
+ Graduation & subdivision in 10-mm-squares possible
+ some dishes also available as macro plates
Aside from the petri dishes of the manufacturer Greiner Bio-One, you will find culture dishes by Nunc Thermo Scientific in this category. If you have any questions about the products, please do not hesitate to contact us.
In microbiology petri dishes are particularly used when working with nutrient media. They are part of the basic equipment of a modern laboratory and are needed for a variety of applications - but not every kind of petri dish is suitable for every application. Between the different industries and fields of application, lab users should clarify some questions before purchasing the product:
â What size does the surface need to be? → Petri dishes can be found in different sizes 35, 60, 94, 100 and 145 mm diameter.
â What is the temperature of the agar? → When working with hot agar, it is essential that the petri dishes are made of durable material. In the Analytics-Shop, you will find exclusively robust petri dishes made of heat-resistant polysterol.
â Is a good gas exchange required? → In this case the choice falls on petri dishes with venting lobes.
â How many parameters must be observed at the same time? → For the simultaneous investigation of various parameters, petri dishes with two or three separated compartments are suitable.
â Is the petri dish used for germ counting? → For this application petri dishes with subdivable 10 mm squares are suitable for a rapid evaluation.
â Is the petri dish required for hygienic control? → Above all, contact clamps are used, which are also available with dividers and ventilation lugs.
