Yersinia enterocolitica Z036, titered - 1 mL
Each frozen aliquot contains 1 mL of a pure, titered culture of Yersinia enterocolitica. The identification of this organism was confirmed by 16S sequencing. The purity of the culture was monitored by Gram staining and by additional culturing. The titer was performed on a minimum of two aliquots after freezing. The freezing medium contains 15% glycerol as a cryoprotectant. Please see the Certificate of Analysis for the specific freezing medium used
Live, titered microorganisms can be used to determine a limit of detection (LOD), in diagnostic assay development or cross-reactivity studies. When used as a control for nucleic acid tests, the same protocols as those used to amplify clinical specimens should be employed.
Yersinia enterocolitica is a biosafety level 2 microorganism and must be used within Biological Safety Level 2 facility or cabinet. Please consult your institution’s regulations regarding the use of this organism. For a detailed discussion on biological safety see the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), published by the CDC.
• Use Universal Precautions, this organism is potentially biohazardous.
• Repetitive freezing and thawing is not recommended (aliquot material if necessary). Titer will be altered by a single freeze-thaw.
• To avoid cross-contamination, use separate pipette tips for all reagents.
Titered material should be stored at -65°C or below.
