1 Dissolve ingredients (except bicarbonate, vitamins, cysteine and sulfide) and sparge medium for 30 - 45 min with 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture to make it anoxic. Add and dissolve bicarbonate and adjust pH to 6.8, then distribute under same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate-type tubes or serum vials and autoclave. After sterilization add cysteine and sulfide from sterile anoxic stock solutions autoclaved under 100% N2 gas atmosphere. Vitamins are prepared under 100% N2 gas atmosphere and sterilized by filtration. Adjust pH of complete medium to 6.5. For incubation use sterile 80% H2 and 20% CO2 gas mixture at two atmospheres of pressure.
