Recipe of the Week – Week 10: Nutrient Broth

Continuing our new series of chemical recipes, we bring you week 10 – nutrient broth.

Remember that when preparing any of our recipes, you should always wear appropriate PPE.

What is nutrient broth?

This is a liquid medium that’s used for cultivating a variety of undemanding microorganisms, providing the necessities required for growth. It has the same formulation as nutrient agar, which we covered in a previous week, except nutrient broth does not contain agar, a solidifying agent, so the broth remains a liquid at room temperature.
