I don't know about your Snyder agar, but I used to pour blood plates all the

your sheep blood and buying the right king of sheep blood. Get citrated, not 
defibrinated. And be sure your TSA, while tempered to 45-50 C, is completely

problems with my blood plates. Just be sure to QC for sterility, pos and neg
