Critical:

  • Put date on plates. Some antibiotics aren't very long lasting.
    • For example, Ampicillin plates only last 2-3 weeks. (is there a citation for this? -Janet 2012/07/03)
  • Wait to put the antibiotic in until it is cool enough to touch the bottle to your cheek.
    • This prevents thermal degradation.
