Ready-to-use reference stock cultures will alleviate labor-intensive processes of preparing, storing, and maintaining in-house cultures. Each lyophilized microorganism is no more than four passages from the reference culture and is authentic and traceable. Choose from more than 750 microorganism strains derived from well-known culture collections from around the world including ATCC®, NCIMB, NCTC and more. Individual lyophilized microorganisms are available in LYFO DISK® and KWIK-STIK™ configurations. A Certificate of Quality comes standard with each shipment. Also, a printable Certificate of Analysis is available online at www.microbiologics.com 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
 
*Note: Add the packaging option to the Catalog Number when placing an order: Cat # + L (for LYFO DISK® 6 Pack); Cat # + K (for KWIK-STIK™ 6 Pack); or Cat # + P (for KWIK-STIK™ 2 Pack). Examples are 5041L, 5041K or 5041P. For more information click on the information button for each individual strain.

MediaPhase 1: ISF (modified Infant Soy Formula) Broth, Phase 2: Tranfer to Sulfite Agar
TemperaturePhase 1: 55°C, Phase 2: 55°C
AtmospherePhase 1: Anaerobic, Phase 2: Anaerobic
Growth TimePhase 1: 48 hours, Phase 2: 48 hours to 7 days
Additional TipsPrepare and Use ISF (modified Infant Soy Formula) Broth using the following steps:
1. Fill tubes with 10 ml Infant Soy Formula. Infant Soy Formula may be purchased at a grocery store.
2. Place a four-penny nail in each tube. A four-penny nail is approximately 1.5 inches, or 38 mm, in length. It should contain steel or iron.
3. Sterilize the broth.
4. Inoculate ISF Broth with one LYFO DISK® or KWIK-STIK™.
5. Grow at 55°C in anaerobic conditions for 48 hours. The broth will turn grey, indicating growth.
6. Make two dilutions, 1:10 and 1:100.
7. Sub with a swab to Sulfite Agar. Plate the undiluted sample and the 1:10 and 1:100 dilutions. It is necessary to plate the diluted samples because at higher concentrations the colonies are pin-point which makes colony characteristics difficult to see. Sulfite Agar is used for detecting thermophilic anaerobes which produce sulfite.
8. Incubate the agar in anaerobic environment at 55°C for 48 hours to 7 days.
