Product Description: Agar D, Purified Agar
Appearance: White or light cream pH: 6.0-8.0 (1.5% solution)
Molecular weight: N/A Agar A( Cat# G1253) is a purified grade agar, and is completely nutrient-free. It is most useful in defined media formulations where traces of nutrients cannot be tolerated. Some of labs use purified agar as substitute of agarose. Agar is a polysaccharide complex obtained through bleaching and hot water extraction of agarocytes from the red alga Rhodophyceae, found in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and in the Sea of Japan.
