Sterilize by filtration under 100% N2 gas atmosphere.

Dissolve ingredients (except thioglycolate) and adjust pH to 6.75 with NaOH. Sparge medium with 100% N2 gas for 30-45 min and dispense under the same gas atmosphere into anoxic Hungate type tubes to 50% of their volume. Before inoculation add thioglycolate from a 0.5% (w/v) stock solution, freshly prepared under 100% N2 gas and filter-sterilized. Then add sterile air to a concentration of 2.5 % O2 in the vial.
