very clean. The smallest particle of dirt can spoil the whole thing or falsify results. I think there are standardized sets available. I am not really into that, just watched it at the university often. As an agent you need agar agar but I think that you are familiar with that.
I once wanted to do this with imperfect fungi and moulds and stuff like that but it turned out to be so difficult the determinations and so manifold the literature that I abandoned it shortly after again.

Do you ever identify these many membranes by culturing them? Or are you always taking samples and looking at them (under microscope) as time allows?
