The medium is an essential nutrient for cell culture and needs to be stored in the special media bottles. The quality of the medium is related to whether the cells can grow well. So what are the characteristics of the culture media bottles?

According to the different synthesis methods, culture medium can be divided into three categories: natural medium, synthetic medium and semi-synthetic medium:

Natural culture medium: Natural culture medium refers to the use of raw materials of various animals, plants or microorganisms, and its composition is difficult to know exactly. The main raw materials used for this medium are: beef extract, wort, peptone, yeast extract, corn flour, bran, various cake flours, potatoes, milk, serum, etc. This medium is nutrient-rich, microorganisms grow vigorously, has a wide range of sources and is easy to prepare, so it is commonly used, especially for the preparation of medium commonly used in laboratories. Its stability is often affected by factors such as the manufacturer or batch number.

Synthetic Medium: Synthetic medium is a type of medium whose chemical composition and quantity are fully known, formulated with chemicals of known chemical composition. The chemical composition of this kind of medium is accurate and reproducible, but it is expensive, and the microorganisms grow slowly, so it is only suitable for some scientific research, such as nutrition and metabolism research.

Semi-synthetic medium: In the synthetic medium, one or several natural components are added; or in the natural medium, one or several chemicals with known components are added to form a semi-synthetic medium. For example, potato sucrose medium, etc. This medium is most used in production practices and laboratories.

The culture media bottle is a special container for storing culture medium. It is processed from polyester raw materials and generally has the following characteristics:

1. It has good mechanical properties, impact resistance is not easy to break, and its strength and elasticity are higher than other raw materials.

2. Oil resistance, fat resistance, dilute acid, dilute alkali, and most solvents.

3. Low gas and water vapor permeability, excellent gas barrier, water, oil and odor properties.

4. High transparency, can block ultraviolet rays, and have good gloss.

5. Non-toxic, tasteless, good hygiene and safety, can be directly used for food packaging.

6, the texture is lighter, easy to transport and so on.

Depending on the type of medium, it needs to be stored in different environments, such as low temperature, long-term or short-term, etc. The good characteristics of the media bottles can meet the storage requirements of different medium.

The FAI climbed 5.9 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018, quickening from the 5.7-percent growth in Jan-Oct, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday in an online statement.

The key indicator of investment, dubbed a major growth driver, hit the bottom in August and has since started to rebound steadily.

In the face of emerging economic challenges home and abroad, China has stepped up efforts to stabilize investment, in particular rolling out measures to motivate private investors and channel funds into infrastructure.

Friday's data showed private investment, accounting for more than 60 percent of the total FAI, expanded by a brisk 8.7 percent.

NBS spokesperson Mao Shengyong said funds into weak economic links registered rapid increases as investment in environmental protection and agriculture jumped 42 percent and 12.5 percent respectively, much faster than the average.

In breakdown, investment in high-tech and equipment manufacturing remained vigorous with 16.1-percent and 11.6-percent increases respectively in the first 11 months. Infrastructure investment gained 3.7 percent, staying flat. Investment in property development rose 9.7 percent, also unchanged.
