Agar Agar is widely used as a solidifying agent for preparation of culture media.An Agar plate or Petri dish is used to provide a growth medium using a mix of agar and other nutrients in which microorganisms, including bacteria and fungi, can be cultured and observed under the microscope.
      Since it is indigestible for many organisms, that microbial growth does not affect the gel used and it remains stable. Agar is often dispensed using a sterile media dispenser.
Applications:

  • Culture Media: Because of its high gellifying power and its vegetable origin, Agar Agar constitutes a natural non-toxic matrix for the formation of culture media. It is widely used for practically all pathogenic and nonpathogenic bacteria and fungi because it is not easy to metabolise and has a good gel firmness, elasticity, clarity and stability.
  • Plant Tissue Culture: The major application of Agar Agar is in th field of plant tissue culture. Tissue culture is emerging as the standard method for the propagation of orchids and other ornamental plants, vegetables, fruits and other agricultural products and this has increased the demand for Agar Agar.
  • Dentistry: In prosthetic dentistry, Agar Agar is used in the preparation of dental casts. It is an elastic impression material and it can be reused for making multiple impressions.
  • Air Freshener Gel: Agar Agar is being used in gel form in Air Fresheners. It will have a gel texture with the essential oils infused within it.
