National Collection of Type Cultures Brochure 

You can now learn about the authenticated bacterial strains and services provided by the National Collection of Type Cultures (NCTC) in our brochure. The brochure helps microbiologists and quality control scientists understand the range of bacterial strains available, their application and the benefits of depositing their own bacterial isolates with NCTC. You can read about the NCTC 3000 Project and the value of NCTC's historical strains. 

NCTC is one of the collections which form the Culture Collections, a world-class biological resource centre whose principal role is to preserve and supply quality controlled and authenticated reference strains (bacteria, fungi, viruses and cell lines) of known provenance for use in medical science and laboratory healthcare.
