Jump to navigation Jump to search
- 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.
