Full of Bacteria and Fungi

Petri dishes might seem gross to some people, but they’re pretty crucial in the advancement of science. Want to grow a virus? You’re going to need to grow some cells for the virus to reproduce in. Want to grow bacteria from an infection? You’ll have to place them on a comfortable bed of agar full of food. Our world wouldn’t be the same if Alexander Fleming hadn’t noticed weird bacterial colony behavior on his moldy Petri dishes. We’d still be living in a pre-antibiotic world. So what are you waiting for? You can get this gold Petri dish to celebrate all the wonders that come from dirty, dirty dishes. It also makes a great gift for microbiologists, immunologists, virologists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
