EUCAST Recommended Strains for Routine and Extended Internal QC
The Selectrol® range from TCS Biosciences Ltd now includes all QC strains required to meet routine and extended internal quality control as recommended by EUCAST*.
Selectrol discs are freeze-dried for easy storage and, when reconstituted, will provide cultures with characteristic reactions. The discs are also water soluble and can, therefore, be inoculated directly onto solid or into liquid culture media. The vials are sealed under vacuum, and contain self-indicating silica gel providing visible indication that the discs remain moisture-free.
EUCAST Recommended Strains
Manufactured under licence from Public Health England, Selectrol® discs are prepared exclusively from NCTC® (National Collection of Type Cultures) and NCPF® (National Collection of Pathogenic Fungi) and are guaranteed first generation derivatives from the source strain.
