Rattler™ Plating Beads are typically used for easy plating of bacteria or yeast.
- Sterile 4.5 mm glass plating beads are convenient and easy to use
- No flaming required
- Quickly spread cells evenly over the entire growth surface of a plate
- Ideal when plating yeast for two-hybrid screens
Rattler™ Plating Beads save researchers time and effort when plating bacteria or yeast. The sterile glass beads are simply poured onto solid plated medium together with a liquid cell suspension, and the mixture is shaken to distribute the cells evenly over the medium’s surface. This allows for numerous plates to be processed quickly and efficiently. Pour the Rattler™ beads onto a series of plates, stack, and shake simultaneously in a side to side motion. The beads can be easily removed following inversion of the plates and pouring off from the plate lids. Using the Rattler™ Plating Beads is simple, easy, and saves time. The beads come sterile in polycarbonate bottles and can be reused following cleaning and autoclaving. Non-sterile bulk bead bags are also available.
