Bacterial Strains

The distribution of bacterial strains is limited to public or private institutions and educational institutions with a laboratory adapted to the handling of the strains ordered.

Order processing is done by the CIP Secretariat. The sending of biological materials is carried out in accordance with the regulations in force.

The strains are distributed for strictly scientific use (non-commercial) under a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) which complies with our internal policy and the national and international standards.
