CECT holds most of the reference strains listed in the WDCM catalogue. This catalogue was developed for facilitating the access to the reference strains listed by the ISO TC 34 SC 9 working groups and the Working Party on Culture Media of the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene. The WDCM catalogue meets the need expressed by these bodies of having a unique identifier for the recommended test strains. Thus, available equivalent strains in different Culture Collections or supplied by different suppliers are uniquely identified by its WDCM code.

Consult the updated list of CECT strains with their WDCM equivalences.

Moreover, some of these WDCM strains have been certified based on its biochemical profile and the appearance of its colonies in selective and differential culture media. You can find more information in the section Certified strains.
