Questions and answers (Phages)

  • Does the DSMZ “Opening of Ampoules and Rehydration of Dried Cultures” scheme apply to the revitalisation of dried phages supplied in glass ampoules?

    The outer vial of the double-vial glass ampoule can be opened in the same way. In case of phages, the filter paper strip or the filter discs are removed from the inner vial under sterile conditions and used as described according to here.
