1 Dissolve ingredients (except cysteine, carbonate and glucose), adjust pH to 7.0 and sparge medium with 100% CO2 gas for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic. Add the cysteine and carbonate, then equilibrate the medium with the CO2 gas to pH 7.0. Distribute medium under same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. Thereafter, add glucose from an anoxic stock solution prepared under 100% N2 gas atmosphere and sterilized by filtration. Adjust pH of complete medium to 7.0, if necessary.
2 For solid medium add 12.00 g/l agar (BD Bacto).
