Application Notes
Using food coloring to color-code plant tissue culture media is a long-standing “trick of the trade” among micropropagation teachers. By color-coding media, students are able to quickly identify basal media containing different concentrations of vitamins and plant growth regulators. The PhytoTechnology Laboratories Media Color-Coding Sampler is designed to allow easy colorcoding of tissue culture media for rapid identification. The sampler can be used with either semi-solid or liquid media formulations with no negative side effects to plant tissues
