Culture Collections specialises in preserving and distributing strains and cell lines of medical and clinical importance. Organisms deposited within each of our collections are maintained by experienced staff supported by experts in Public Health England’s specialist and reference laboratories who use a combination of traditional and more novel procedures to ensure the integrity of the strains.
Many scientists and researchers want to ensure their strains / cell lines that are used in their research projects are preserved and made available to the wider scientific community. By depositing with Culture Collections we can assure you that:
The research community will be able to reproduce and build on your work more readily and your work will continue to be available to future generations of researchers. Depositing with us will also help raise the profile of your peer-reviewed publications by requiring other users to cite original work.
There is no charge to deposit with us and you can access your deposited strains free of charge at any time (shipping charges may apply).
We are constantly striving to improve the range of strains / cell lines available from our collections in order to reflect the needs of current life science research and we actively encourage scientists and researchers, from academic and commercial organisations, to deposit with us.
