how long are LB-Kan plates good? - (Oct/03/2007 )

I have some LB-Kanamycin plates that are 2 months old and have been stored at 4 degrees. Are they still good to use?


I'd use them. This depends a bit on the initial Kan concentration, since it will degrade over time. I assume they have been in plastic bags and have not dried out.
