Incubation is carried out in GasPak jars that are either mechanically flushed with an anaerobic gas or made anaerobic through the use of commercial products such as Anaero-Packs or GasPaks.  All jars should have a methylene blue EH indicator to ensure that anaerobiosis has been accomplished.  One may also use an anaerobic glove box either for primary incubation or for examination and work on plates which have been set up in anaerobic jars.
