Q: I am using my sterilizer to dispose of plastic petri dishes w/ bacteria growing on them. Is it necessary to place the plates into some type of container before beginning sterilization? I am worried about the plastic melting.

A: You should have a metal basket, which normally comes with this sterilizer.

Thank you -
