Media and Solution preparation

All laboratories require special solutions for performing experiments.  If a lab cultures cells or microbes of any kind, they also need media for growth.  Bacteria and cells can grow in liquid media or on semi-solid media.  

Making solutions and media is an important job since interpreting the results of all laboratory experiments requires that the media and solutions be made correctly.
