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 information

Handling procedure
  1. Open thawed vial according to enclosed instructions or visit for instructions.
  2. Aseptically transfer the entire contents to a 5-6 mL tube of #18 broth. Additional test tubes can be inoculated by transferring 0.5 mL of the primary broth tube to these secondary broth tubes.
  3. Use several drops of the primary broth tube to inoculate a #260 plate and/or #260 agar slant.
  4. Or, to obtain a biphasic culture, add 0.2-0.5 mL of the primary broth tube to a
    #260 agar slant. Best practice is to incubate these slants at an angle.
  5. Incubate at 37°C under microaerophilic conditions for 3-5 days. Use an anaerobe jar with an active catalyst and a microaerophilic gas generator pack or other acceptable method. All tubes and slants should be incubated with caps loosened.
Handling notes

This organism grows best under biphasic conditions or on agar. Improved growth may be obtained by warming media to 37°C prior to inoculation.

Purified genomic DNA of this strain is available.
