Product Description

Cat no 209

Although bacterial viruses, or bacteriophages, are present in many natural environments, they cannot survive autonomously. They require a host cell to reproduce and survive. In this experiment, students will learn about the different life cycles of bacterial viruses. They will then perform a viral plaque assay to indirectly visualize the viruses and to determine viral titer and multiplicity of infection (MOI).

Kit Includes: instructions, cells, phage beads, Ready-Pour Agar, COLORTOP Agar, microtest tubes, sterile loops, petri plates, luria broth, PBS

All you need: 37˚C incubation oven, waterbath, adjustable micropipettes with tips
