How to optimize a Media Preparation ?

Critical points in Media preparation

STERILITY : It MUST achieve a high enough temperature to STERILIZE the Media (Ex : 121°C-15min, 110°C-20 min)

FERTILITY : It MUST NOT achieve a too high temperature in order not to burn the media (to avoid destroying the sugars, peptones…) (ex: <121,5 or 122°C : Malt agar)

HOMOGENEITY : so that the whole media batch goes through the same temperature. So that the media has the same density (no random solids) for a good plate reading.

REPEATABILITY : In order to assure always the SAME media production
