Making normal NGM for imaging plates (Cabreiro Lab) v1 [post]

Saul Moore
C. elegans is maintained in the laboratory on Nematode Growth Medium (NGM) agar which has been aseptically poured into petri plates. The NGM agar medium can be poured into petri plates easily and aseptically using a peristaltic pump. This pump can be adjusted so that a constant amount of NGM agar is dispensed into each petri plate. A constant amount of agar in the plates reduces the need for refocusing the microscope when you switch from one plate to another. The imaging plates can be 35mm,
