Our Italian oyster plates are made to order in our in-house lab using medical-grade petri dishes. If properly stored upon arrival, they have a shelf life of approximately 6 months. Italian oyster plates should be stored in the refrigerator to maintain viability. Note that mycelium cultures require basic lab skills. Handle using sterile technique to prevent contamination.
