About Us

Thailand's Microbial Bank Infrastructure preserves and benefits
humanity in the long run.

The Microbial Bank conducts activities with the primary goal of preserving microorganisms as long-term Thailand reference samples. To examine the quality and taxonomy of fungal specimens, and to share our knowledge in order to create a network of in-depth research on phenotype and genotype. Support microbial economic development research, as well as the work of government agencies whose primary responsibility is to protect resources and biodiversity, and ensure that all activities are carried out in accordance with Thai and international law.


Long-term preservation of non-pathogenic natural collections (only BSL1-2) that would be lost or extinct without preservation. Our microbial bank is supported by the Thai government as part of the country's infrastructure.

Our microbiological collection contains species and strains that are standardized, accurate, and supported by science. Our fungarium is currently ISO9001 certified for the quality of its samples and services, but our ultimate goal is to be ISO20387 accredited, which is the standard for managing microbial bioresources.

Our data management system combines validated data from Polyphasic Methods analysis, as well as the expertise of researchers with more than ten years of experience in the fields. Our data will be made available via the Knowledge Platform, which will provide taxonomy, distribution, and utilization data for the benefit of our partners, such as conservation groups and industrial or SME companies interested in the bio-based economic development of Thai fungi.

The main operations are divided into two areas.


Long-term, validated microbial storage and is a long-term treasury where ownership rights remain with the depositor and not released to third parties. Depositors can withdraw from the treasury only if proven. the loss caused by that infection itself. where the infection is no longer surviving

Culture Collection


Storage of dry samples or genomic DNA dry samples, or microscopic slides, or any reference specimen in accordance with the rules of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (Shenzhen Code 2018) allows deposit, exchange, and loan of samples for research purposes only.
