Biosafety Icon BSL 1

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 the enclosed instructions.
  2. Using a single tube of #1877 broth (5 to 6 ml), withdraw approximately 0.5 ml to 1.0 ml with a Pasteur or 1.0 ml pipette.  Rehydrate the entire pellet.
  3. Aseptically transfer this aliquot back into the broth tube and mix well.
  4. Use several drops of the cell suspension to inoculate a second tube of broth, a slant and/or a plate.
  5. Incubate all tubes and plate at 26°C for 48 hours.
Handling notes
Colonies on #196 agar are irregular, dull, erose, rough, wrinkled, opaque, low convex with slightly peaked, and pale orange in color.
Variation in colony morphology is typical for this species. Colony morphology also varies with different media formulations.
Additional information on this culture is available on the ATCC® web site at www.atcc.org.
