MP Biomedicals™ Roll & Grow™ Plating Beads

Safely and easily spread yeast and bacterial cells

Manufacturer:  MP Biomedicals™ 115000550

Catalog No. MP115000550



Roll & Grow™ Plating Beads are used to spread 25-400μL of bacterial or yeast cells across the surface of an agar plate, providing a safer, faster alternative to the traditional method of plating with a glass rod sterilized with ethanol and flame. Sterile Roll & Grow™ Plating Beads are provided in two skirted 50mL conical tubes. Between six and seven 4mm glass beads are used per plate for a total of approximately 160 standard 100mm plates.

  • Spread cells in just seconds per plate
  • Eliminate hazards of flame and ethanol
  • No need for fragile glass “hockey sticks”
  • Consistent, even colony distribution
  • Sterile and easy to use
