Flavonifractor plautii (Seguin) Carlier et al.
Anaerobic conditions for transfer may be obtained by either of the following:
Anaerobic conditions for incubation may be obtained by any of the following:
Anaerobe Systems PRAS Brucella Blood Plates (AS-111 or AS-141) can be used to analyze colony morphology and purity.
Always use freshly prepared pre-reduced media or pre-reduced media that has been previously prepared but stored under anaerobic conditions. Resazurin in the media is a color indicator for anaerobic conditions. Observance of pink color in medium before use or during incubation shows anaerobic conditions have not been met and oxidation has occurred. Medium should be discarded.Additional information on this culture is available on the ATCC® web site at www.atcc.org.
