Reference Strains

Selectrol is a fully traceable and cost effective range of first generation micro-organisms which have predictable biochemical reactions, making it ideal for a variety of quality control and testing applications.

  • Quality control of culture media, staining reactions, biochemical profiling.
  • Determination of antibiotic concentrations in blood, serum or CSF samples.
  • Antibiotic susceptibility testing controls, whether by disc diffusion or serial dilution.

Selectrol is a first generation derivative of original stock cultures obtained exclusively from the National Collection of Type Cultures (NCTC) or National Collection of Pathogenic Fungi (NCPF)., produced by TCS Biosciences company. Where appropriate other international strain designations, such as the ATCC, are listed for reference purposes only.

Selectrol strains are presented as water-soluble freeze-dried discs with most strains being available in packs of 10 or 25 discs. Selectrol is versatile, and can be inoculated directly onto solid media or dissolved in an appropriate broth.
