1 First dissolve ferric citrate in water by heating and adjust to pH 6.0, then add other medium ingredients except ferrous chloride, vitamins and cysteine. Sparge medium with 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic, then dispense medium under same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. Add ferrous chloride (dissolved in 0.1 N HCl), vitamins (sterilized by filtration) and cysteine from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under 100% N2 gas. Prior to inoculation check pH and adjust to 6.0, if necessary.
