Here are a few pieces of information that may be useful to you:
- You can get petri dishes from Peter Louw; some chemicals as well.
- You get electroporation cuvettes from Blommie
- The chloramphenicol is in the walk-in fridge on the second floor.
- We have our own kanamycin. It is kept at room temp in lab 319.
- Don’t grow bacteria overnight in ampicillin at 37°C, rather do it at 30°C. If the cells grow too fast, the media becomes acidified and this can degrade the ampicillin.
