I am looking for information on the best way to dry clostridium onto a
glass carrier and assure recovery in the neighborhood of 10^4. Any
ideas. I have started with a 10^8 inoculum and dried @ 36 C for 40
minutes in an aerobic environment and have not recovered anything. I am
afraid that the condensation seen in an anaerobic environment would
prevent inoculum from drying on the carrier. I would eventually like to
do a germicidal spray test.
