Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Muriel Vasconcellos: All 3 are correct, though your examples for 'inoculate' do not address this particular context. The 'introduce' one is fine. I was referring to the 'inoculate' examples.
3 hrs
  -> Not even the last one, "introduce (cells or organisms) into a culture medium"? And thanks.//They're not examples, they're different definitions of inoculate, only the last one is relevant ;@)

agree  Robert Carter
