Welcome to the web page of the Canadian Burkholderia cepacia complex research and referral repository.  

We can provide:

  • Species identification for members of the Burkholderia cepacia complex of bacteria.
  • Strain typing information, as well as identifications for other species which grow on Burkholderia cepacia selective agar and for which the preliminary identification might be equivocal: such as B. gladioli, Ralstonia species, Pandoraea species and others. Most of our work is for cystic fibrosis clinics, however we are very happy to provide assistance to anyone else requiring identification of these bacteria.
  • Bacterial isolates for research studies.
