After cultivation, the mycelia of T brevicompactum were separated by filtration using a Buchner funnel
. Then the mycelia were dried at 90[degrees]C until reaching a constant weight.
Larger Buchner funnels
give faster filtration; a minimum 7 cm diameter is recommended.

None of us worked in the era when analysis was a handcrafted art--that's the subject of old quantitative and qualitative analysis texts, full of mortars and pestles, burets and Buchner funnels
. Modern instrumental methods wiped that stuff from the face of the earth a long time ago, and by this point, no one misses it.
