Growth conditions: 30 °C
Compound Amount Unit Conc. [g/L] Conc. [mM]
OXOID Legionella CYE-Agar base
(with Legionella BCYE supplement)
1000 ml - -
1 Dehydrated media preparations are available from media distributors.
2 We use OXOID Legionella CYE-Agar base with Legionella BCYE supplement.
3 For solubilization of the lyophilized pellet use standard liquid media. Although Legionellae do not grow in those media they are suitable for resuspension and transfer onto agar plates.
4 Note: Alternatively use CYE-ACES AGAR

1 Add Cysteine-HCl, then ferric pyrophosphate solution to solution A. Adjust the complete medium to pH 6.9 ± 0.5 at 50°C with sterile 1.0 N KOH or HCl. The pH of the medium is critical. Finally, add solution B. Swirl medium in flask during dispensing to petri dishes or tubes in order to keep charcoal suspended.
