Dissecting sucks. And when the autoclave does not work right those bubbles
is easy to come by... That would be a beginning lines of my
autobiographical necromaniac thriller. Actually on semisynthetic media for
some reason this stuff sometimes even worse. I a) do not mix agarized
media with sterile carbohydrate solutions (and I do not want to hear
anymore about "caramelization" - OK?!!!) and b) flame the plate so that at
least on the surface (and in focus) there are no those dumbass bubbles.
Sometimes it works, sometimes one needs to sacrifice a chicken.
