Some of the toxic micro-algae held in CICCM collection

Some of the micro-algae held in CICCM collection

The CICCM contains many unique cultures and underpins research world-wide. This site will facilitate the selection and ordering of species and, in due course, each species will have a full description and toxin profile. Most species are available immediately, but some are cryopreserved and these will take several weeks to prepare for dispatch.

To see Culture Collection full list of speciesĀ go to Culture Search and click FIND

Note: All our taxonomic, nomenclatural information are based on Algaebase .

Not all strains may be available at any particular time. If live cultures are embargoed for a period of time purchase of DNA or toxin extracts may be arranged.
