Bacterial Cell Bank Services

Customized Bacterial Culture Collections

  • Do you need a microorganism cell bank for your natural samples that is as diverse as possible, and even includes rare species and previously uncultured species?
  • Do you need microorganism cell banks from small sample volumes, restricted samples (e.g., patient biopsies) or highly dilute samples?
  • Would you like to add sample-specific growth stimulators such as tissue fluids from biopsies or gut lavage, but you also deal with limited samples?
  • Are you looking for an efficient way to singularize cells of complex communities and obtain guaranteed monoclonal colonies in standard lab formats such as multiwell plates with minimal turnaround time and dramatically reduced consumption?

The Biomillenia microfluidic platform is ideal  for the analysis and isolation of bacterial strains from all types of samples such as tissue, soil, plant, human, animal or water. A microbial sample is distributed into tens of millions of parallel droplet cultures enabling clonal bacterial growth from single cells in very small volumes.


Owing to this unique culture environment, the diversity of the cultured microbiota is significantly better preserved than with traditional culture methods. As a result, bacterial cell banks contain a broad variety of bacterial strains from the original sample, including previously uncultured bacteria. Because of the real-time assay capabilities of our platforms, bacterial strains can also be screened and subsequently isolated, for example analyzing enzyme activities or detecting secreted molecules in binding assays.
