Strains for Quality Control, e.g. of Media, Rapid Identification Systems, Disinfectant, Sterilization, Antibiotic or Fungus Resistance Testing, and Miscellaneous Tests.

The list has been compiled according to data provided by the depositors of the strains or by literature. The claimed properties have not necessarily been verified by the DSMZ. DSMZ shall not be deemed to have guaranteed certain properties of the strains except if it has expressly confirmed such guarantee in writing.
