Reference bacteria.

I need to have different types of bacteria available for my in house quality
assurance system.
I have previously used cultures bought from ATCC. But I find it time
consuming to maintain them in house.
I have thought about starting to use the reference bacterias offered from
Oxoid ( loops) or TSC (Selectrol tablets).

Does anyone have experience  with them?

When you inoculate a petridish with this reference bacteria, for how long
would you keep it and pick colonies, and still be sure you do not get
alteration of the properties of the bacteria?
