Due to financial cut-backs University of Copenhagen no longer will be able to maintain SCCAP. So, after nearly 70 years existence, since 1986 as public service collection, it is closing. Fortunately, cultures will not be lost, as SCCAP will be merged with the NIVA Culture Collection of Algae in Norway. The merged collections will comprise nearly 2000 highly diverse strains and should be very attractive for bioprospecting, research and teaching.
Sales of SCCAP strains have been temporarily stopped but will be resume when the merging process has been completed, expected to be November-December.
We thank all our customers, many of which regular, for choosing SCCAP during its many years of existence and looks forward to continue our service to you from the NIVA Collection of Algae.
