1 Dissolve ingredients except bicarbonate and sulfide, then sparge medium with 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture for 30 - 45 min to make it anoxic. Add bicarbonate and adjust pH to 6.9, then dispense medium under 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas atmosphere into serum vials (e.g., 20 ml per 100 ml bottle), seal and autoclave. Before use reduce the medium with sodium sulfide from a sterile anoxic stock solution prepared under 100% N2 gas.
2 After inoculation, add 2 bar overpressure of sterile 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture.
