UCCCB Catalogue

The absolute requirement of deposition of type strains of new taxa in one or more of the internationally recognized permanent culture collections, in conjunction with description and valid publication, is a recommendation under Rule 30 of the Bacteriological Code (International Committee of Systematic Bacteriology, 1997). 

Under this rule, a taxon cannot be considered validly published and hence a valid name unless it has been deposited and it is available for distribution from a recognized culture collection. Moreover, descriptions of new taxa are not accepted for publication in the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology, the official organ of the International Committee on Systematic Bacteriology, unless type strains have been deposited.

List of Type Strains for Commercial Purposes

All deliveries to People's Republic of China and Republic of China will be carried out only against provision of an Entry Inspection Certificate issued by the local authorities and sent to UCCCB prior to sending the goods. For all deliveries to the USA UCCCB will provide a Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) form, mostly a negative declaration, which need to be authorized by the recipient. We kindly ask all customers from the USA and Canada to return authorization at once as it is needed prior to sending the goods.
