Nutrient Agar is a basic culture medium used to subculture organisms for maintenance purposes or to check the purity of subcultures from isolation plates prior to biochemical or serological tests. In semi-solid form, agar slopes or agar butts, the medium is used to maintain control organisms1. Nutrient Agar is suitable for teaching and demonstration purposes. It contains a concentration of 1.5% agar to permit the addition of up to 10% blood or other biological fluid, as required. The medium, without additions, may be used for the cultivation of organisms which are not exacting in their nutritional requirements. Suspend 28g in 1 litre of distilled water. Bring to the boil to dissolve completely. Sterilise by autoclaving at 121°C for 15 minutes.
