Recipes for making media commonly used in lab

Contents

Bacterial growth media

  • Recipes are for 1L liquid media
  • Can use recipes to make plates by adding bacto agar to concentration of 1.5% w/v
  • Top agar is used by adding bacto agar to 0.7% w/v

LB

  1. 10g Tryptone
  2. 5g Yeast Extract
  3. 10g NaCl
  4. Add deionized water to 1L
  5. Autoclave

Rich medium

  1. 10g Tryptone
  2. 5g Yeast Extract
  3. 5g NaCl
  4. 2g Glucose
  5. Add deionized water to 1L
  6. Autoclave

SOB

  1. 950ml Water
  2. 20g Tryptone
  3. 5g Yeast Extract
  4. 0.5g NaCl
  5. Dissolve
  6. Add 2.5ml 1M KCl
  7. Adjust pH to 7.0
  8. Add 10ml 1M MgCl2
  9. Autoclave

SOC

  1. Add 20ml sterile 1M Glucose to SOB
  2. Aliquot and freeze for storage

Media for Competent Cells
