Agar plates are petri dishes that contain a growth medium containing solidified agar. These are used to grow microorganisms, such as bacteria, yeast and mold. The agar plates help you control the environment and identify microorganisms. Miclev has a wide range of high quality agar plates in various formats from accredited and certified suppliers such as Becton Dickinson and Biotrading. These agar plates are used in laboratories, cleanrooms and other critical environments where high quality is required. The products are routinely tested by the manufacturer for sterility, performance, physical properties, packaging and documentation. Certificates are available, these are supplied with each batch.

Agar plates are available for air and surface sampling, as well as for sterility testing and for identification.

They are available with different lids such as lockable plates with click-lid function, they are packed in single, double or triple packaging. Extensive quality control of sterility and bacterial growth is always carried out by the manufacturers, each batch of agar plates is tested according to international standards or according to the customer's specifications. Agar plates with extended shelf life (so-called XT plates) are suitable for environmental monitoring. These have a long shelf life, up to 6 months when stored at room temperature (15 - 25° C). This gives you a high level of flexibility and enables you to make better use of your resources. In addition, with this long shelf life, you can maximize the sizes of the batches.
