Anaerobes commercially available media

Is there commercially available prepared media suitable for growing strict anaerobes?

Pre-reduced, anaerobically sterilized (PRAS) media is available from Anaerobe Systems.  This medium is sterilized and packaged under anaerobic conditions so that it is ready to use.  ATCC has used Modified Reinforced Clostridial Broth (AS-606), Chopped Meat Medium (AS-811) and Brucella Blood Agar (AS-111) successfully to culture strictly anaerobic organisms in our labs.
