|2 To make medium anoxic bring it to a boil, cool under 100% N2 gas atmosphere, add 0.5 g/l L-cysteine hydrochloride and adjust pH to 7.0. Dispense under 100% N2 gas atmosphere by filling 7 ml medium into anoxic Hungate-type tubes (for strains demanding meat particles put those first into the tube (use 1 part meat particles to 4 or 5 parts fluid)). Autoclave at 121°C for 30 min. For agar slants use 15.0 g agar per 1000.0 ml medium.|
