Cis or trans? That's what matters.

If your incubator is not in micro control, I'd be careful. If your autoclave has no drying cycle, you could trying leaving the bottles insidethe unopned utoclave while it cools - this might pull a neg pressure with some residual heat might dry the bottles.

Sir, since i have no drying oven to dry my moist water sampling bottles after autoclaving, do you think the trapped moist inside the bottle will affect the results for total plate count test? what is the standard for water sampling bottles? should it be really dry or it doesnt matter if its dry or wet? can u give me a reference? thanks;)
