A number of researchers have reported that Oxyrase aids in the recovery of
stressed microbes.

You can find some of their references on our website: www.oxyrase.com

In addition, Oxyrase has been used to grow Campylobacter in broth without
gassing. You can request those references through our website, if you want

I hope that this information is helpful.
