New Accessions to the National Collection of Industrial, Food and Marine Bacteria

At NCIMB we are always keen to highlight the positive contribution that bacteria make to our lives and lactic acid bacteria are a great example of this. They have been used for centuries in food production and also play a key role in the production of animal feed. The benefits of their action include preservation -and of course taste!

Recently lactic acid bacteria have been the subject of much commercial and research interest with respect to their role as probiotics, and the possible health benefits of foods that use them for their production. This interest is not only reflected by these new accessions but also in some of the strains we are seeing deposited in our secure storage service as well as demand from clients to confirm the presence or absence of key strains in food products.

For further information on depositing a strain with NCIMB, or to obtain these new strains contact Dr. Samantha Law (s.law@ncimb.com) Tel: +44 (0) 1224 711100.
