BioWork 7030: Aseptic Transfers on an Open Bench
Transferring sterile liquids or cultures from one container to another is one of the most common tasks you'll perform in biomanufacturing. It's a skill that requires mental focus and attention to detail in order to prevent contamination. Most aseptic work is done under a laminar flow hood or a biological safety cabinet. But in this experiment, we'll practice pipetting and pouring TSB stock on an open workbench.
