Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.

Please pay attention to the main LHS mailing list or pop into our #london-hack-space IRC channel and say hello.

During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

The item

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.

This is the ATCC page for the strain; http://www.lgcstandards-atcc.org/products/all/23769.aspx?geo_country=gb

This is the strain on the BCCM site; http://bccm.belspo.be/catalogues/lmg-strain-details?NUM=1524
