The breathable bag is filled between 50 to 60% of its volume, the top of the bag is folded down, and the bag is sterilized. After cooling, bags are opened, in a ‘clean’, filtered air stream, and the desired species is introduced to the bag. The bag is immediately sealed and agitated to mix the species with the substrate. Bags are now ready for incubation.
Bags are sold in lots of 1,000 and shipped in two boxes.
More About Bio-Degradable Bags
This bag contains an additive that allows it to degrade by breaking down its chemical structure. Oxidation through heat or ultraviolet light leads to this degradation, rather than bacteria and fungi that also decompose materials. Thus, this bag is ‘oxo-biodegradeable.’ We tested degradation rates using standard protocols in a lab setting. The actual degradation rates you see will vary due to the conditions surrounding the bags as they degrade. We cannot guarantee or specify a timeframe for complete degradation of this bag.
