May 2007

Did you know?

... that petri dishes were named after the German bacteriologist Julius Richard Petri (1852-1921) who invented it in 1877 when working as an assistant to Richard Koch.

Not only are these dishes convenient for cultures, plant germination, agar-based bacteria samples, and many other day-to-day laboratory uses, but they are conveniently designed to fit under the microscope.

SKS carries the polystyrene petri dishes in a variety of colors: red, blue, amber, and clear, which are ideal for identifying different batches of work of work in laboratories. All petri dishes are manufactured under strict aseptic conditions.

These inexpensive polystyrene dishes provide a versatile function and can be disposed of after the experiment is completed.
