So many samples! These guys are going into the -80*C freezer until I need them again.
These are frozen stocks of bacteria (E. Coli, specifically). When I want to grow new cultures of bacteria, all I have to do is scrape a tiny piece of the frozen sample, put it into a flask with bacterial growth media, wait a little bit.. And voila! They grow!
Why am I growing bacteria🧐? I need these guys to produce a protein that I need for my experiment! I give them the instructions (DNA) to make the protein, and then I wait for 4-6 hours for the bacteria to work hard to make it, and then I extract the protein! Bacteria are such a valuable tool ️ in the lab.
Why are tubes so many colours? I don't know about you, but I think -80C is pretty cold . The colours help me quickly identify which sample is which so I can get my samples and close the freezer ASAP. Leaving the door open too long also triggers a really annoying low temperature alarm .
