NCTC Bacterial DNA



NCTC holds nearly 5100 type and reference bacterial strains.  DNA from Hazard Group 2 and 3 strains from the NCTC collection have been selected and are available via the online catalogue. 

The DNA supplied (approximately 2µg) is high molecular weight and is therefore suitable for a wide range of molecular applications including whole genome sequencing.

A full list of the strains that are available/coming soon in this format can be found below. 

Although stock is shown as 'Stock Unknown', stock is available for all strains.
