Biosafety Icon BSL 2

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. Add Formate/Fumarate Supplement to all media to be used as described in the notes section.
  2. Open vial according to enclosed instructions.
  3. Using a single tube of #1115 broth (5 to 6 mL), withdraw approximately 0.5 to 1.0 mL with a Pasteur or 1.0 mL pipette. Rehydrate the entire pellet.
  4. Aseptically transfer this aliquot back into the broth tube. Mix well.
  5. Use several drops of the suspension to inoculate a #260 slant, and/or plate.
  6. To obtain a biphasic culture, add 0.5 mL of the suspension to a #260 agar slant.
  7. Incubate tubes and plate at 37°C, under anaerobic conditions, for 24 to 48 hours. Use ananaerobe jar with an active catalyst and a microaerophilic gas generator pack, or other acceptable method. Incubate slant with cap loose.
Handling notes
Formate/Fumarate Supplement: Prepare a solution containing sodium formate and fumaric acid at a concentration of 6% each in distilled water; adjust pH to 7.0, and filter sterilize. Prior to inoculation, add 0.25 mL of this solution to each 5.0 mL broth tube. Also add 0.25 mL to each agar slant and agar plate.  Use a loop to spread the Formate and Fumarate solution over the agar surface of the plate until dry, and then inoculate with the organism.
This culture may grow well biphasically. To achieve this, inoculate a slant with 0.5 mL of cell suspension. Cells will grow in the liquid portion. 
Storage at liquid nitrogen temperatures, with 10% glycerol as the cryoprotectant, is recommended for long-term preservation.
