General MEAG with Antibacterial powder information

This is a premium product revolutionizing mushroom cultivation.
MEA with antibacterial powder is a gelatinous medium that is used to purify, germinate, isolate, and manipulate mushroom mycelium, reducing chances of contamination drastically due to its antibacterial compound.

We recommend MEAG with Antibacterial powder for the following:

  • Germinating spores
  • Isolating a specific strain of mushroom
  • Purify mycelium from other contaminated agar plates
  • Clone wild mushroom tissue, which has a likelihood of contamination

Why use MEAG instead of just MEA?

Spores obtained from wild, homegrown, or trustable spore sellers Might include bacterial contamination. That is due to methods of spore collection, preservation, and transportation (Such as spore syringes and spore prints). In several cases, when spores are infected, they carry bacteria attached to them and introduce them to the Agar media. This will result in fast-growing bacterial spores that make it difficult for mushroom spores to germinate (as they are slower than bacterial spores).


On the other hand, when infected spores are introduced to MEAG, the mushroom spores will germinate and grow, leaving behind bacterial contamination. That is because the cells composing the mycelium (Hyphae) have long and sharp filaments, which carry reduced populations (if any) of bacteria when they pass through the MEAG.

*Please note that MEAG is different from MYA. MYA includes Yeast, whilst MEA is Malt Extract and Agar only.*

MYA is more prone to contamination because yeast is highly nutritious and thus not recommended for germinating spores or cloning mushrooms. Therefore, MEAG is an excellent product to clone or germinate spores.

Do not have a pressure cooker? No problem; message us, and we will send you detailed instructions on how to use a microwave for sterilising along with your purchase. Please check our listing Make Agar Plates, and see what you need
First, you would need a Reagent Bottle  If made in a Microwave, a 500ml reagent bottle would fit. If using a Sterilizer, then a 1000ml reagent bottle should fit.

We have relied on this Mix to experiment with different varieties in our lab.
