Subject: MILK agar?
I've a student trying to get to grips with milk agar for a protease test.
It's a long time since I did this! References suggest autoclaving
milk-powder solution, but this seems dooomed to failure with heat
Anyone currently engaged successfully in milk agar that can give advice will
become our lab hero for the week!
