FAQ: Q/ What is an autoclave and what is its purpose? A/ An autoclave is a device that heats the nutrient agar under pressure in order to sterilize it prior to inoculation. A household pressure cooker can be substituted for an autoclave provided it is capable of reaching 250 degrees Fahrenheit / 15 PSI. Note, many modern pressure cookers are not capable of reaching this temperature / pressure so make sure you check yours prior to using it as a autoclave. Q/ Is it absolutely necessary to sterilize the nutrient agar? A/ No. Sterilization is highly recommended but not required. Many would-be scientists have successful experiments without the use of an autoclave.
