Check Safety Data Sheet Information

ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.

Handling procedure
  1. Follow instructions as suggested for the culturing of Mollicutes:

PROCEDURES FOR PROPAGATING MOLLICUTES:

    1. Open the thawed vial according to the enclosed instructions.
    2. Make serial dilutions by transferring the entire contents of the vial to a test tubecontaining 4.5 mL of appropriate broth. Repeat process by transferring 0.5 mL fromthe second to third tube, etc.
    3. Use an uninoculated tube of broth to serve as a control
    4. Incubate all tubes under the recommended conditions and appropriatetemperature (see step 2). The time necessary for growth will vary from strain tostrain. Growth in broth for this strain will generally be observed between 3 to 7days.
    5. Depending on the medium used, growth will be indicated by increased turbidity,a color change, or both (see notes section).
    6. Inoculate a Trypticase Soy Agar with 5% Defibrinated Sheep Blood plate with0.1 mL to check for contamination. Incubate plate at 37°C. No growth should occuron Trypticase Soy Agar with 5% Defibrinated Sheep Blood.
  1. Tubes may be incubated aerobically. The incubation temperature is 37°C.
Handling notes

This strain requires an additional 5-10% horse serum (Thermo-Fisher, 16050-122) added to the broth for growth.

Ureaplasma strains grow very rapidly. The indicator in the first tube will change from yellow to green within hours. It is especially important to make serial dilutions of this strain. When alkaline conditions are reached (as indicated by the color change), the culture will rapidly die out unless refrigerated immediately (+4°C) or stored frozen at -80°C. Refrigerated broth cultures may remain viable for periods up to 30 days. No visible turbidity will be seen; therefore, the color change is the only indication of growth. Transfer, freeze, or lyophilize the culture as soon as possible.

Store vials at freezer temperatures until ready to use.
