Bibliography: SEBALD M & VERON M 1963 ANNLS.INST.PASTEUR 105 89
Data: (ATCC 14736) J. C. Kelsey, PHLS Norwich in 1953 / Blood, endocarditis / Sebald and Veron consider this a strain of Comamonas percolans / Sebald, M. & Veron, M. (1963) Annls. Inst. Pasteur, Paris 105, 89 / This strain is equivalent to the validly described and published Brevundimonas vancanneytii type strain, however, in accordance with in-house genomic analyses this strain identified as Brevundimonas diminuta. The name Brevundimonas vancanneytii is retained in accordance with NCTC 9239’s equivalence to the validly published type strain, and on the understanding the description of this strain is based on more than genomic data (i.e. biochemistry, substrate utilisation and cell wall lipid analysis).

The Culture Collections hold cell cultures, bacteria, fungi and virus strains from worldwide sources. Our scientists ensure that the identification of the cultures is correct and they remain unchanged from when they are first deposited with the Collection. Nevertheless, some of the data we provide about the cultures is supplied by the person depositing the strains and, although we have multiple checking procedures in place, we cannot always verify all their data. Please note that the Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data provided by the depositors.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are to be used as controls for microbiology testing and for research purposes only. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.

Contact us if you want to discuss commercial use of the cultures.
