In my lab we use hungate bottles only for the liquid anaerobic media and bi-
layer solid media. We have to do inoculations on solid meida only using
Petri dishes in the anaerobic jar supplemented with gas-packs or controlled
atmosphere anaerobic chamber. THere is a problem in the chamber: the cag
mixture we use is 10% Hydrogen, 15% CO2 and Nitrogen as the rest. While
incubating plates inside, the media dries up very quickly and an enourmous
condensation is forming! IT is almost a lake of water there.
IS there any product which would absorb an acess condensate?
Thanks a lot
