The objectives of this research were to compare commonly used liquid and plating media to elucidate whether one medium provided superior growth of Helicobacter pylori in vitro. The liquid media compared were Mueller‐Hinton broth, brain heart infusion broth and H. pylori special peptone broth, formulated in this laboratory. No significant differences in growth rates were noted and shaking during the incubation of broths was not essential for good growth. The plating media compared included… 
Comparative Evaluation of Three Supplements for Helicobacter pylori Growth in Liquid Culture
TLDR
This study recommends further application of β-cyclodextrin as a culture supplement with the potential capacity in neutralizing toxic compounds and flourishing the secretion of H. pylori proteins without addition of interfering proteins.
Liquid culture medium for the rapid cultivation of Helicobacter pylori from biopsy specimens
TLDR
The developed system allowed the primary isolation of H. pylori in clinical samples and provided 87% sensitivity and 100% specificity and compared with traditional culture methods, microscopy and an H.pylori-specific TaqMan real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
Helicobacter pylori free‐living and biofilm modes of growth: behavior in response to different culture media
TLDR
Ham's F‐12 seems to be a good medium to support both growth phenotypes of H. pylori, and sub‐MICs of antibiotics increased the biofilm formation and affected the luxS gene expression, which is a target to eradicate resistant infection.
Culture of Helicobacter pylori from domestic water samples--the impact of strain variation on growth on solid and in liquid media.

TLDR
The findings highlighted the importance of using a range of isolates for evaluations, as examination of laboratory-adapted strains alone did not provide an accurate representation of the utility of media that may be used to recover H. pylori from water.
Optimization and Culture Conditions to Improve Helicobacter Pylori Growth in HAM's F-12 Medium by Response Surface Methodology
TLDR
The experimental design strategy allowed, for the first time, the optimization of H. pylori growth in a semi-synthetic medium, which may be important to improve physiological and metabolic studies of this “fastidious” bacterium.
A Thin‐Layer Liquid Culture Technique for the Growth of Helicobacter pylori
TLDR
A thin‐layer liquid culture technique for the growth of H. pylori in liquid media in order to get affluent growth and a simple approach for examining bacterial properties is introduced.
Culture media for the isolation of campylobacters, helicobacters and arcobacters
TLDR
To date there is no generally accepted “standard” method of isolating campylobacters from food, although Bolton broth and modified charcoal, cefoperazone deoxycholate agar have been proposed in a number of standard methods.
Evaluation of a Nested-PCR assay based on the phosphoglucosamine mutase gene (glmM) for the detection of Helicobacter pylori from raw milk
TLDR
The authors suggest that the Nested Polymerase Chain Reaction approach could be used as a sensitive method for a rapid screening of sheep, goat and cow milk samples during the microbiological control of these large consumed foods.
The microbiological, histological, immunological and molecular determinants of Helicobacter pylori infection in guinea pigs as a convenient animal model to study pathogenicity of these bacteria and the infection dependent immune response of the host.
TLDR
The usefulness of microbiological, histological, immunological, serological and molecular methods for the detection of persistent H. pylori infections in guinea pigs was showed.
Detection of Helicobacter pylori in raw bovine milk by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
TLDR
FISH can serve as an alternative molecular method for screening raw bovine milk for the presence of H. pylori according to its ability to convert to viable, yet unculturable states upon exposure to stress conditions.

Enhanced cultivation of Helicobacter pylori in liquid media.
TLDR
H pylori can be cultivated in large quantities of brain heart infusion broth with 5% horse serum and 0.25% yeast extract and this method may provide a useful, reproducible, and simple method for biochemical, molecular, and physiological studies of H pylory, when those require large quantity of the organism.
Factors affecting growth and susceptibility testing of Helicobacter pylori in liquid media
TLDR
It is found that sheep blood, whether whole or laked, inhibited the growth of H. pylori in broth media but that this inhibition was negated in media with serum and the effect of bismuth on the growth was compared.
Helicobacter pylori in Liquid Culture: Evaluation of Growth Rates and Ultrastructure
TLDR
Cell counts revealed that cultures stored in glycerol or fetal bovine serum had a significantly lower loss in viability when compared with cultures stored without cryopreservatives.
Comparative evaluation of three selective media and a nonselective medium for the culture of Helicobacter pylori from gastric biopsies
TLDR
Three selective media, Skirrow's, Dent's CP, and modified Glupczynski's Brussels campylobacter charcoal media, and chocolate agar medium are compared and evaluated for the isolation of H. pylori from gastric biopsies to recommend the use of a combination of two selective media for the maximum recovery.
Characterization of the morphologic conversion of Helicobacter pylori from bacillary to coccoid forms.
TLDR
Observations suggest an inhibitory effect of basic pH, endogenously produced, on the growth of H. pylori in vitro, which appears to produce a deaminase enzyme that is likely responsible for the generation of ammonia, which results in the increase in culture pH, the morphologic conversion, and the lost culturability observed in vitro.
Growth of Campylobacter pylori in liquid media.
TLDR
C. pylori grew over a wide optimal pH range of 5.5 to 8.5, rather than the oval and coccal bacilli occasionally reported, and several bases supported good growth when supplemented with serum.
Rapid growth of Helicobacter pylori.
TLDR
The addition of Iso Vitalex resulted in significantly improved growth on the charcoal media and Skirrow's medium showed very poor performance after three days of incubation and needed a long incubation time.
A simple and efficient continuous culture system for Helicobacter pylori.
TLDR
Continuous culture is a simple and efficient growth system for the cultivation of a 'synchronous' spiral form of H. pylori and provides cells with growth characteristics similar to the fresh isolate which are highly adaptable to the in vitro environment.
Transportation of Helicobacter pylori cultures by optimal systems
TLDR
Chocolate agar slants are considered the more suitable system for transporting H. pylori cultures, especially when transport time longer than 4 days is expected, and when the slants were stored at 4 degrees C after arrival, half of the isolates were recoverable 10 days after mailing.
Development of a new medium for the isolation of Arcobacter spp.
TLDR
A medium containing a basal nutrient mix along with sheep's blood was found to be the most effective for the growth of A. butzleri, A. cryaerophilus, and A. nitrofigilis and a deep red color around the colonies also was observed with this formulation.
