Safe: There is no risk of contamination, as manipulation is reduced to the minimum.

Traceable: The used strains are traceable to different Type Culture Collections, and can be shown to be no more than two steps from the original strain.

Known concentration: The existing concentration of the material is certified.

Flexible: There are different formats for diverse microorganisms, at various concentration ranges.

Service: Apart from the species available from stock, there is the possibility of preparing reference material for whatever microorganism might be required and at a concentration predefined by the client.
