Isolation
sewage filter sand, Loveland, OH, 1961
Product Format freeze-dried
Type Strain no
Medium ATCC® Medium 28: Emmons' modification of Sabouraud's agar
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 25.0°C
Duration: axenic
Protocol: ATCCNO: 16522 SPEC: This strain is distributed as a freeze-dried preparation. See the general procedures for opening a freeze-dried vial. Aseptically add 0.5 ml of ice cold medium to containing 12% sucrose to the freeze-dried inner shell vial. Once completely rehydrated, aseptically transfer the material to a 100 mm agar plate of the appropriate medium and evenly distribute the material over the surface of the agar with a spread bar. Subculture 4-6 weeks when incubated at 25C. Subculture 6-12 months when incubated at 18C To subculture, transfer a loopful of material to a fresh plate and spread evenly over the surface.
