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 enclosed instructions or visit www.atcc.org for instructions.
  2. Rehydrate the entire pellet with approximately 0.5 mL of #3 broth. Aseptically transfer the entire contents to a 5-6 mL tube of #3 broth. Additional test tubes can be inoculated by transferring 0.5 mL of the primary broth tube to these secondary tubes.
  3. Use several drops of the primary broth tube to inoculate a #3 plate and/or #3 agar slant.
  4. Incubate at 55°C for 24 hours.
Handling notes

Depositor stated that this strain grows on agar at 35°C, but this was not verified by ATCC® laboratories.

Additional information on this culture is available on the ATCC® web site at www.atcc.org.
