We used to use campylobacter gas packs for our cultures and often found that the control
organism quickly became unrecoverable. Our solution was to take a candle and a tin and use
the old fashioned candle jar method. Our control now lives quite happily between subcultures
and we find a good number of clinical isolates.

I don't think that we are alone in this experience.

I hope that you find this useful
