Preparing M&S medium
Posted 02 January 2011 - 10:26 AM
I had to make a M&S medium (Murashige and Skoog). And I had to make 3 "bottles" of medium and then add those together. But why did I need to make those "in between solutions" (stocksolutions?)
I think it has something to do with preventing precipitation? But what components would precipitate then?

i mean it could be better doing each separately to minimize contamination..
in other terms..you'll not be happy if all your media got contaminated

And it was the solutions 1, 2 and 3 I had to prepare in diffrent bottles to prevent precipitation.
(after this I simply had to put them toghether with the rest , solutions 4, 5 and vitamines were just seperated because those where allready in stock)
SO I wonder what is in solutions 1,2 and/or 3 that you cant mix?
FeNaADTA was used in stead of FeSO4•7H2O
Its not to minimize contamination, because you make the changes on contamination bigger by doing it like this.. (since you autoclave more then 1 bottle and you add them toghether afterwards..)
So any ideas?
