  • Strains can grow on Tryptic Soy Broth plates (TSB) or TSB + Blood plates. There is no hemolysis on blood plates.
  • Strains take 2 days to grow on plates from the freezer; please plan accordingly!
  • Shaking is not needed. Notice that these cells have a more granular appearance, as they form tight clusters of cells.
  • Overnight cultures in BHI begin to die off; please do not plan on using them for more than the next day.
