CytoCulture International, Inc. is an environmental biotechnology firm based in Point Richmond, CA  providing technical consulting and microbiological laboratory research services to support bioremediation and biofuels projects.

The company was founded in 1986 to develop its own proprietary continuous flow bioreactor systems supporting acclimated cultures of aerobic bacteria used to biodegrade a wide range of hydrocarbon contaminants in soil and groundwater.

Currently, we have expanded our environmental microbiological laboratory to investigate in situ biodegradation processes for a wide variety of hydrocarbon and chlorinated contaminants under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Teaming with affiliated environmental engineering firms, both in the United States and internationally, CytoCulture consults on and participates in a wide range of bioremediation services for a variety of clients and situations, from refinery remediation of contaminated groundwater to clean up of oiled shorelines.

In July-August 2015, the CytoCulture microbiology lab transitioned to a research facility within the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at California State University in Chico, CA. Laboratory research will continue on a case-by-case basis for our clients in collaboration with the Center for Water and the Environment within the College of Natural Sciences at CSU Chico.

As of August 1, 2015, CytoCulture is not accepting lab research samples without prior contractual arrangements.
