CBS AND NCCB COLLECTION & IDENTIFICATION SERVICES BACK UP TO SPEED! by Webmaster Mailing June 2020 Read more 2020-06-22 12:54:20
 
Since the laboratories of the Westerdijk Institute had to close due to the Corona (COVID-19) virus measures in the Netherlands from March 15th, the stock of the collections could not be accessed anymore for processing new orders for some time. Only a few activities could be continued, such as necessary maintenance of the active agar collection, and shipping to customers materials that had already been activated. Throughout the lock-down period, our online catalogue was still available for browsing and we encouraged our customers to select strains and submit orders so that, as soon as access was permitted again, they could be processed as quickly as possible. Working from home, our sales staff continued to provide assistance and answer questions. From May 11th the lock-down measures were alleviated and Westerdijk Institute and collection staff started to pick up regular activities again.
