soft agar
Semi-solid agar used to gelate medium for culture of animal cells. Placed in such a medium, over a denser agar layer, the cells are denied access to a solid substratum on which to spread, so that only cells that do not show anchorage-dependence (usually transformed cells) are able to grow.
