    Agar Slants are a solid medium used in Mycology to culture and maintain healthy mycelium. The slanted shape of the agar slant provides a larger surface area for mycelium growth compared to a flat agar plate, as well as enabling easier storage and transport of Fungal cultures. These slants are commonly used for the long-term preservation of Fungal cultures and the propagation of pure cultures for diagnostic and research purposes. In addition, some agar slants can be used to store mycelium for up to a year! Midwest's Malt Extract Agar Slants are created with a blend of agar, organic malt extract, organic locust bean gum, and potato dextrose that promotes optimal mycelial growth and viability. This type of slant is more durable than agar plates, which only last for a few weeks. Simply transfer your preferred mushroom mycelium from an agar plate to an agar slant and store it in the refrigerator for future use. Each package of five test tubes is vacuum-sealed in polyolefin packaging and can be stored in the fridge for up to 90 days before use.

        Cons:
        I purchased 3 packs of these on 05/13/2021 and forgot about them until a couple weeks ago and thought why not give them a shot. All 15 worked. I'm blown away and am writing this because I'm back to purchase more.

        Cons:
        Had 15 cultures to transfer into slants until next fall. Every vile was perfectly poured and all but 2 have fully colonized top layer. The 2 fails are on me (too much liquid culture transfered). But zero contamination in the 13 good slants. Comes vacusealed and very clean. Fast shipping, so no opportunity to freeze during shipment.

        The product came fast and as pictured
