Microaerophile
A microaerophile is a microorganism that requires oxygen to survive, but requires environments containing lower levels of oxygen than are present in the atmosphere (ie. <21% O2; typically 2-10% O2). Many microaerophiles are also capnophiles, requiring an elevated concentration of carbon dioxide (eg. 10 O2 in the case of Campylobacter spp.). In the laboratory, microaerophiles can be cultivated in a candle jar. A candle jar is a container into which a lit candle is introduced before sealing the container's airtight lid. The candle's flame burns until extinguished by oxygen deprivation, which creates a carbon dioxide-rich, oxygen-poor atmosphere in the jar.
