Identification of yeast cultures

The CCY offers identification of yeast cultures using conventional methods - the morphological, physiological and biochemical properties of cultures are tested according to the book the Yeasts – a taxonomic study edited by Kurtzman et al. (2011) or using DNA sequence analysis (sequencing of D1/D2 domain of 26S rRNA gene.

If the yeast culture is supplied as a mixture of microorganisms, additional costs will be asked to purify a yeast culture. The charges are given in the Price list.
