Mix ingredients, except Trace vitamins, NaHCO3, sulfur and Na2S·9H2O, adjust pH to 6.0, and autoclave. Filter-sterilize Trace vitamins and 5% NaHCO3 solution, and add to the medium. Steam sulfur for 3 hr on each of 3 successive days. Separately autoclave 5% Na2S·9H2O solution under a N2 atmosphere. Distribute the medium into culture vessels containing appropriate amount of sulfur (e.g., 20 ml of medium in 120 ml serum bottles containing 0.6 g sulfur) under a stream of H2-CO2 (4:1, v/v) gas mixture and seal with butyl rubber stoppers. Aseptically and anaerobically add the sterile Na2S·9H2O solution. Pressurize the inoculated bottle to 300 kPa H2-CO2 (4:1, v/v).
Trace mineral solution:
Use Trace mineral solution of Medium No. 324 supplemented with 0.01 g/L SrCl2·6H2O, 0.01 g/L NaBr and 0.01 g/L KI.
