Hi Phil:

The name of the company that supplies reagents and media for growing
anaerobes is:
			Oxyrase, Inc.
			P.O. Box 1345
			Mansfield, OH 44901
			Voice: (419) 589-8800
			Fax:   (419) 589-9919

Oxyrase is an enzyme system that selectively and effectively removes
oxygen from bacteriological media. Oxyrase allows one to work without
jars or bags and to incubate cultures in a standard, aerobic incubator.
Products are available for broth and agar. For surface plating, a
special dish (OxyDish) is needed. For pour plating, a standard culture
dish can be used.

If you would like more information you can contact me by email
(jamcop at worldnet.att.net) or at the above location.

Best regards.
