Bacterium Thioalkalivibrio paradoxus DSM 13531 yes DSM 13531 = ARh1 (KSCN grown): Growth with thiocyanate : add KSCN up to 15 mM, incubation - 30C in conical flasks 1/10 liquid to air ratio, statically; growth is slow, about 1 week DSMZ BacDive
Bacterium Thioalkalivibrio paradoxus DSM 13541 yes DSM 13541 = ARh1 (thiosulphate grown) Growth with thiosulfate (40 mM) and NH4Cl (5 mM); in conical flasks 1/10 liquid/air ratio on shaker 200 rpm. Heavy sulfur formation is usual and it is necessary to continue cultivation until the sulfur has been utilized. DSMZ BacDive
