1 Dissolve ingredients except bicarbonate, vitamins, methanol, cysteine and sulfide, then sparge medium with 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic. Dispense medium under the same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. Add vitamins (sterilized by filtration), methanol, cysteine and sulfide from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under 100% N2 gas and bicarbonate from a sterile anoxic stock solution prepared under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture. Prior to use adjust pH of complete medium to 6.8, if necessary.
Solution occurs in 14 other media (first defined in Medium 318).
