I sterilized Arabidopsis seeds which have been transformed by vacuum
infiltration. But one week after growing on the selection plates I found
a lot of fungi on the plates. I repeated it again and again, but I
couldn't get rid of them.
The sterilization methode was :
3000 - 4000 seeds per 1.5 ml Epp. tube
shaking for 5 min, RT, in (95% EtOH and 0.1% Triton X-100)
shaking for 5 min, RT, in (Potassium chloride solution with one
drop of Tween 20)
washing 3 times with sterile H2O
Could anyone out there give me a tip?
Thanks in advance for any comment
