World Data Centre for Microorganisms (WDCM Strains) Reference Strains available from NCTC

The WDCM Reference Strains Catalogue provides a list of unique identifiers for strains recommended for use in Quality Assurance to enable broader and easier access to Reference strains listed in various International Standards, in particular standards for Food, Water and Environmental Microbiology testing.

To enable you to find the reference strains you require more easily, the WDCM Reference number has now been added to the 94 NCTC strains listed on the WDCM Reference strains catalogue.

Details of the strains specified by a range on International Standards can be found on the WDCM website (opens in a new window).
