Quantitative Genomic DNA from Fusobacterium nucleatum subsp. nucleatum (ATCC® 25586DQ)

Genome Data Seal Click here to learn about our Enhanced Authentication Initiative

Type Strain: yes  /  Biosafety Level: 1

Application ATCC® Genuine Nucleics can be used for assay development, verification, validation, monitoring of day-to-day test variation, and lot-to-lot performance of molecular-based assays. The quantitative format allows for the generation of a standard curve for quantitative PCR (qPCR) to determine bacterial load.
Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.
