Helicobacter culture contamination - Help

Select against the Aspergillus contaminant by adding amphotericin B
(2 micrograms/ml) to fresh media and streak for isolated Helicobacter
colonies.  Disinfect all containers or pouches which have been used to
incubate your plates and discard other contaminated plates.  When the
culture is clean, you can safely dispense with the amphotericin B, as
aseptic technique will be all that is required.  Please let me know if
I can be of any further help.
