SUMMARY: A solidified medium (NP medium) was devised which supported luxuriant growth of Clostridium novyi type B. It consists of peptone, extracts of yeast and liver, blood, glucose and certain other compounds essential as nutrients and/or for poising oxidation-reduction potential. The peptone could be replaced by a commercial preparation of acid-hydrolysed casein or a mixture of 18 amino acids, but the presence of cysteine and either ascorbic acid, thioglycollate (mercapto-acetate) or… Expand
Comparison of Schaedler agar and trypticase soy-yeast extract agar for the cultivation of anaerobic bacteria.
Quantitative recovery of C. novyi B was improved on SA; recovery of the other clostridia tested was comparable on the two media, and no appreciable differences in results with the twoMedia were noted for Bacteroides fragilis, B. melaninogenicus, or Fusobacterium fusiforme. Expand
Comparison of Schaedler Agar and Trypticase Soy-Yeast Extract Agar for the Cultivation of Anaerobic Bacteria
Schaedler agar (SA) and Trypticase soy-yeast extract agar (TSYEA), both supplemented with rabbit blood (5%, v/v) and menadione (0.5 mg/liter), were compared with respect to quantitative recovery,Expand
The significantly viable particle: a study of the subculture of an exacting sporing anaerobe.
Summary The difficulties encountered in the surface growth of Clostridium oedematiens (CI.novyi) of types B and D were investigated. Best results were obtained when nutrient agar was enriched withExpand

Summary The surface growth of several species of clostridia was assessed in terms of the contribution made to the total viable count by spores and vegetative cells respectively. In some cases a largeExpand
Growth and toxin formation by Clostridium botulinum at low pH values.
Among other factors the nature of the acid and not solely the pH value is an important factor in controlling the growth of Cl. botulinum at low pH. Expand

Although no single medium was superior for the growth of all isolates, 12 of 22 isolates inoculated onto media stored for 4 weeks or less, grew best on Schaedler agar. Expand
IT was shown by Collee, Rutter and Watt (1971) that the difficulties encountered in the surface culture of Clostridium oedematiens (CZ. novyi) types B and D can be overcome by the use of modifiedExpand

It is suggested that neuraminidase production may be of value in taxonomic studies and that its production by several pathogenic species of clostridia may beof interest in studies of pathogenicity and virulence. Expand
Ferredoxin and Formyltetrahydrofolate Synthetase: Comparative Studies with Clostridium acidiurici, Clostridium cylindrosporum, and Newly Isolated Anaerobic Uric Acid-Fermenting Strains
The results suggest a low degree of genomic relatedness between the two species, which contrasts sharply with their apparent high degree of phenotypic similarity. Expand
The use of sulphite-containing media in the isolation of Clostridium welchii.

Reducing conditions in the medium were more critical for blackening than for growth, and a simple, modified isolation method for Cl. welchii is described which provides optimal conditions for both processes. Expand


An efficient general-purpose culture medium for aerobes and anaerobes.

  • 1966
The synergistic efiert of both liver digest and yeast extract used in the author's medium, and the heai-stable growth factor3 derived from them, are believed to be responsible for its superiority as a general-purpose medium for both aerobes and anaerobes. Expand
