Plated Media - Luria Bertani Agar (Miller)

Quick Overview

The LB Agar (Luria Bertani, Miller) is a nutritionally rich media used for maintaining and cultivating recombinant strains of Escherichia coli. The Miller formulae are designed for growth of pure cultures of recombinant strains. The media provide all of the nutritional requirements of organisms that have been derived from Escherichia coli K12, which are deficient in B vitamin production. Escherichia coli grows more rapidly than in conventional media, because these media provide the cells with amino acids, nucleotide precursors, vitamins and other metabolites that the microorganism would otherwise have to synthesize.

LB Agars are available with the precence of:
Kanamycin
Ampicillin
Ampicillin, X-GAL
Ampicillin, X-GAL and IPTG
