|Other:||IMPORTANT NOTICE: Listeria monocytogenesThe Type Strain of L. monocytogenes is NCTC 10357, but it is atypical in the CAMP test (with Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 1803) and is non-haemolytic: phenotypically, it identifies as Listeria innocua. This culture is also non-motile. For a typical strain of L. monocytogenes we recommend NCTC 7973. (See also: Jones, D. & Seeliger, H. P. R. (1983) Int. J. syst. Bact 33, 429)|
|Biosafety Responsibility:||It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country|
The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.
Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
