Hi Cathal,

when you buy food, specially snacks, in Asia, you'll find a small
pouch in the container that contains an oxygen absorber. I never have
seen them in Europe yet, however. Anyway, fixing on e of them in the
lid might be useful in anaerobic culture. The agar itself shouldn't
contain too much oxygen anymore, as it has been boiled before.
