Golden Teacher Spore Print
The Golden Teacher Spore Print is made on sterile foil which is stored in sterile ziplock bag and kept under refrigerated conditions. Each spore print can have a tiny scratch of spores removed from the print. With this swab a test run on agar or liquid culture is made to check the conditions of the spores. Only spores that germinate are released as a print.
