Petri dishes have long found use by biologists when they are curating bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When biologists want to have a gigantic breeding ground, they turn to these puppies – 140 mm (5.5″) Jumbo Petri Dishes. These Jumbo Petri Dishes are some of the biggest available. Their gigantic diameter makes them perfect for those experiments that a normal-sized petri dish just can’t handle. And while these petri dishes do not come sterilized, you can sterilize them yourself! Just toss the gargantuan dishes in your (you guessed it) dishwasher and you’re ready for sterile use.

How Does It Work?
Well, that depends on your intended use. With the size of the Jumbo Petri Dishes, there are a number of possibilities. You can still use them for growing bacteria, so long as you have the necessary agar, but don’t limit your possibilities. Try using these in place of household containers to make your experiments even more scientific!
