CCUG is dedicated to archiving, characterizing and identifying microorganisms

CCUG maintains an extensive number and taxonomic range of bacteria and some yeast and fungi. The mandate of CCUG is focused on clinically-relevant bacteria. Microbial strains are accepted within the recommendations of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the regulations of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS). Strains are lyophilized and may be exported promptly to qualified laboratories under United Nations guidelines. Strains are received from clinical, industry and environmental sources for characterisation; the CCUG typing service employs phenotyping, chemotyping, genotyping and genomic sequence determination and analyses for reliable, high-resolution classification and identification.
