besides parafilms, you can use thinfilms use to wrap food for this purpose. since they come in the 8-12" wide role, need to cut into one inch pieces first. they are, in some cases excellent, particularly for the cultures that need long incubation period as it reduces water loss more than does by parafilms.

> Parafilm works best.  You have to check out with a microbiologist and he will show you how to use the parafilm to seal plates.  You will love it once you know how to do it correctly.  The half an inch to 1 inch width cutouts should be held against the edge of the plate with left thumb and then using the right hand strech the tape as you paste it around the plate edge.  The tape will stick and seal the plate very effectively.
