tonight I poured agar into petri dishes (jars) in a still air box for the first time. I feel like I might have contaminated things (felt strange leaving the jar with agar liquid open for so long in the SAB), but will see if the dishes get contaminated.
anyone ever do the the no-pour method with agar? pouring the agar in the jars before sterilizing, and then just sterilizing all the jars, with agar already poured?
seems like it might mean less contamination, but is there a reason not to do it that way?
