Petri Dishes

Hurst Scientific is responsible for the supply of reliable, high quality laboratory products and scientific instruments in Australia. Our products include Petri dishes and other equipment routinely used in microbiology laboratories and other scientific disciplines.

Petri dishes are used every day by scientists for culturing bacteria and other microorganisms such as yeast and mould. They allow for the study and identification of certain colonial characteristics through the separation of single bacterial cells and can be used to test the virulence of particular bacteria.

Petri dishes are shallow dishes made from materials such as glass or plastic. They are cylindrical in shape with a clear lid. They have a larger surface than test tubes, allowing for simpler observation of growth and changes and giving scientists the ability to check for the presence of single qualities and the absence of contamination.

Hurst Scientific distributes cartons of sterile, ready-to-use, disposable Petri dishes made from polystyrene for easy use. They are packed in sealed bags of 10 pieces and are suitable for use in microbiological testing and experiments across many industries.
