The Replica Plating Tool utilizes a locking ring which secures sterile velveteen squares onto a PVC cylinder for easy control of the plating device. To produce replicas, the petri dish carrying microbial colonies is inverted and lowered onto the cloth surface and then lifted. Then a fresh sterile nutrient plate is lowered onto the velveteen surface and lifted, leaving a replica of the original colonies in the new dish. Can be disinfected between uses with a brief rinse in 70% ethanol or chlorine bleach.
