NIVA CCA

Browse our collection of 1724 algae strains

The Norwegian Culture Collection of Algae, NORCCA, maintained and owned by the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) and the University of Oslo (UiO), includes algal strains from the two institutes and the former Danish algal culture collection SCCAP. The collection offers access to algal strains and growth media which can be ordered directly from this website. We ship globally material for education, research, innovation and business. A new website for the collection will be launched this winter, with updated information and taxonomy of strains.
