Medium ATCC® Medium 997: Fresh water ameba medium
Growth Conditions
Temperature: 25.0°C
Duration: grown with Escherichia coli ATCC 11775
Protocol: ATCCNO: 30133 SPEC: This strain is shipped as a dried preparation. Aseptically add 1 ml of sterile distilled water to the inner vial, remove the filter paper pellet with a pair of forceps, and place it in the center of an agar plate of ATCC medium 711 or 997. Add the liquid remaining in the vial to the plate and spread it evenly over the surface of the plate. Incubate the plate at 25C. Trophozoites (amebae) should be evident within 2-3 days.
