Preserving Pure Culture
A pure culture is a significant research subject in the field of microbiology. It contains a single species of microorganism derived from a mixed culture. Subculturing is a known method used to preserve the viability of the sample, but this practice is laborious and exposes the culture to contaminants. In modern times, refrigeration offers a great solution. It can be used to maintain the viability and purity of pure cultures simultaneously, without the need for repeated subculturing.
