Abstract

Summary

A range of solid and liquid media was evaluated for the ability to maintain survival of strains under different conditions. Chocolate agar slopes maintained survival of most strains for longer than 3 days, some strains surviving for up to 9 days, despite a decreased number of viable cells. Temperature and atmosphere did not significantly influence the performance of these slopes. The BBL Campy Pouch system also achieved a considerable recovery rate of after storage for 3 days at the same range of temperatures. Brain-heart infusion broth with horse serum was superior among the liquid media tested, maintaining the viability of for 3 days at temperatures ranging from –4°C to 21°C. Chocolate agar slopes are recommended as suitable for transport of strains.
