C. difficile culture collection

The ESGCD culture collection of C. difficile is based in the Anaerobe Reference Laboratory at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, UK. Cultures are kept on beads at -80 degrees Celsius. Colleagues wishing to deposit isolates should apply to Dr. J.S. Brazier via email.

The collection is meant for collaborative study purposes and to act as a bank of European isolates representing those strains causing infections across Europe.
