aha:  yes use a phosphate buffer system.  for instance, the minimal 
medium that I use contains 2.5 mM potassium phosphate dibasic and 2.5 mM 
potassium phosphate monobasic.  You can adjust the pH before filling up 
to volume.  I don't know how this would work with extreme high and low 
pH's however.  marainne Leverone, Univ. of south Fla.  Tampa, fl
