Default Bacterial Genome in a Bottle

Dear All,

I am searching for the bacterial equivalent of the human "Genome in a Bottle", meaning a commercially available bacterial reference DNA to assess Sequencing Performance.
Is there such a thing that just everybody uses? I found the RM 8375 but it is out of stock / discontinued (?).

Are you looking for a mixed community? zymo has a couple.
Microbial ecologist, running a sequencing core. I have lots of strong opinions on how to survey communities, pretty sure some are even correct.

I just need once single strain to establish and assess performance of the MinION in our lab.
I think I will just go for e.coli K12.
Just figured I'd ask if there is any gold standard.
