1 Dissolve ingredients except carbonates, trimethylamine, vitamins, 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 same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. Complete medium by adding sterile anoxic stock solutions of trimethylamine, vitamins (sterilized by filtration), cysteine and sulfide prepared under 100% N2 gas atmosphere and bicarbonate and carbonate from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture. Adjust pH of complete medium to 6.9 - 7.0, if necessary.
Solution occurs in 170 other media (first defined in Medium 141).
