All Darwin's bacteria are derived from strains held by the British National Culture Collection (NCTC). These cultures are then sub-cultured before being applied to slopes and sold into schools and colleges across the UK. By sub-culturing we are able to supply quality bacteria at affordable prices. Our bacteria is a maximum of 4 passages away from the Culture Collection’s original. If you require fewer passages, or are purchasing for non-educational purposes, please purchase directly from the NCTC.

Made by Darwin Biological in the UK under licence from the UK Health Security Agency, formerly Public Health England. NCTC is the trade mark of UKHSA.

Culture is supplied on a nutrient agar slope in a glass screw top universal bottle. Store in a fridge (2-8°C), bring to room temperature prior to use. Culture around 25°C.

Similar to the other species I purchased. This is HG 2 not HG 1 as you claimed. Indeed all of your organism are HG2 according to where you say they were sourced from. Again I had to dispose of it as the lab is not allowed to use HG2 organisms
