Gallery of G. hansenii produced cellulose material
(Image from Strap et al., 2011)
Wild type G. hansenii produces a cellulose pellicle at the air-medium surface when grown in static liquid culture. This pellicle is formed by the mass secretion of crystalline cellulose microfibrils and has been studied when grown under numerous conditions.
This strain is a microorganism that is unlikely to cause human or animal disease, and is therefore categorized at the lowest biosafety level, group 1.
