Step 5: Pour sample with dissolved EC medium from Thio-Bag into Aquagenx GEL bag
- Pour entire sample from Thio-Bag into GEL bag, but do not seal the bag yet. Lie GEL bag on flat surface with the bag opening slightly elevated so the mixture will not leak out of the bag.
- Use the palm of hand and fingers to press the mixture toward the bottom of the bag. Massage or press any clumps of powder to help them dissolve. Continue until mixture becomes thick and gelatinous.
- Next, use the palm of hand to spread and press the mixture toward the top of the bag. Spread and press the mixture throughout the bag to achieve as uniform a thickness as possible.
- After the mixture is uniformly spread throughout the bag, seal the bag shut.
