Documentation

ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.

Handling procedure
1. Open vial according to enclosed instructions.

2. Using a single tube of #36 broth (5 to 6 ml), withdraw approximately 0.5 to 1.0 ml with a Pasteur or 1.0 ml pipette.  Rehydrate pellet.

3. Aseptically transfer this aliquot back into the broth tube.  Mix well.

4. Transfer 1.0 ml of the suspension to a second tube of broth.  From the second tube, use several drops to inoculate a slant and/or plate if desired. 

5.       Incubate the broth at 26oC for 7 days.  Growth on agar may take up to 2 weeks.

Handling notes
       Colonies are small, circular, entire, and clear.  The cells are coccobacilli to cocci in shape.  The larger cells are less motile while the smaller bud cells are very motile.  They may form rosettes or irregular clumps.
