    • Repeat process for LB Broth (2 bottles).
  • Autoclaved 1140am at 121 degrees for 15min (waited for about 2hrs for the tempeartue to rise and pressure to build up and lower). Temperature safe to remove is 80 degrees.
  • LB Broth was stored in the incubator at 70 degrees.
  • LB Agar was taken out to the ventilating hood and poured out into 40 petri dishes (about 15ml per dish to cover).
  • Petri dishes were parafilmed and stored in the 4degree fridge.
