Bacteriophage Collection

The French Dairy Interbranch Organisation (CNIEL) holds a unique collection of lactic acid bacteriophages. It was established by Actalia in 2014 during the Phagescollect Program.  


This collection is composed of 92 bacteriophages of Streptococcus thermophilus, 64 bacteriophages of Lactococcus lactis and 1 phage of Leuconostoc isolated from dairy products.

  • The collection is administrated, preserved and provided by Actalia under ISO9001:2015 certification.
  • Upon diffusion of the collection, a Material Transfer Agreement will be signed between the Recipient and the CNIEL, depositor of the collection.
  • The bacteriophages will be provided with their respective propagation strains as well as the data linked to it (passport data such as biotope, year of isolation …).
  • Phage diversity studies of Streptococcus thermophilus and Lactococcus lactis are available upon request.


To place an order of more than 10 bacteriophages or for further informations, please contact Sarah Chuzeville (Actalia).
