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.
