I don't know about your Snyder agar, but I used to pour blood plates all the
time. All it involves is making sure your TSA is not too hot before you add
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
melted. some people pour under a hood, but I never did, and I never had any
problems with my blood plates. Just be sure to QC for sterility, pos and neg
