Our listing of non-pathogenic bacteria covers those organisms most commonly studied in general biology courses. Cultures are supplied on agar slants and also on culture plates. Although these cultures are relatively harmless, all bacteria should be handled as pathogens. We are not responsible for infections arising from the use of our materials.
