The formula had been passed to her by her mother, who learned it from Dutch friends Fanny Hesse living in Java. Agar was valuable because it mixed easily with most liquids and once gelled, it did not liquefy, even at the warm incubator temperatures. Hesse was sufficiently impressed to recommend agar to Koch. Soon Koch was using it routinely to grow bacterial species, and in 1884 he first mentioned agar in his paper on the isolation of the tubercle bacillus. I t is noteworthy that Fanny Eilshemius may have been among the first Americans (she was originally from New Jersey) to make a significant contribution to microbiology.
