We provide risk group 1 strains for schools within Germany at low cost. Please note that DSMZ employees cannot provide support for school experiments. The following list gives an overview of the cultures suitable for schools. The delivery of strains that are not included in this list will be decided upon special request (sales@dsmz.de). The strains are also suitable for experiments in university courses.
