    Used as a precautionary, visual cue in our lab to ensure things have been steralised properly. We also host a number of beginner workshops where we use ample rolls of indicator tape to teach beginners how to steralise substrates correctly. We do experiments with tape placed from inside to outside so we can demonstrate how the entire bag contents needs to be correctly heated to be adequately sterilised. Tape is good and reliable.

    I've never used this stuff before, but for the price you can't go wrong. I would rather pay £8 than have a batch of grain not be steralised correctly and get contam later down the line
