Microbial Culture Collection of the Microbial Depository Center (MDC) of the Scientific and Production Center "Armbiotechnology" of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia is one of the specialized repositories of non-pathogenic microorganisms. Most of the strains were initially isolated, identified and studied in Armenia, reflecting the extraordinary diversity of the ecological and climatic biotopes of the Caucasus region. The strains are preserved by systematically inoculating on nutrient media, under mineral oils and lyophilized.
The collection abbreviated as MDC is included in the World Federation of Culture Collections (WFCC, http://www.wfcc.info) under No. 803.
The research activities of the MDC are related to the selection and identification of new isolates, the development of methods for long-term maintenance and preservation of their viability and stability of valuable properties, as well as the search for new practical applications for the deposited microbial cultures.
The MDC represents the National Culture Collection with more than 12.000 strains of non-pathogenic microorganisms of scientific and industrial importance and include spore- and non-sporeforming bacteria, fungi, yeasts, actinomycetes, algae, as well as genetically modified microorganisms.
