02 g ferric nitrate per liter of water (IsoVitaleX, PolyViteX). Preparation of Agar Plates Mueller-Hinton or Iso-Sensitest agars are prepared from a dehydrated base following the manufacturer's instructions with regard to amounts of base, water, and autoclaving. 17 50Â°C by placing them in a water bath at this temperature. When the agar has reached this temperature, antimicrobial dilutions and supplementsâ and blood if requiredâ are added aseptically. Adequate mixing of the antibiotic in the molten agar is essential, and this is best achieved by mixing each antibiotic solution in a small decanted volume of molten agar and then mixing the result with the bottle of molten agar.
