PRODUCTION - Strain Maintenance

Sylvan has 2 dedicated strain maintenance laboratories, located in Langeais, France and Kittanning, USA. They independently house the genetic material from which all of the company’s spawn is manufactured.

The exacting procedures employed at these 2 facilities, designed to ensure product integrity, have been developed through many years of trials, experimentation and a dedication to the achievement of excellence.

During the last  70 years, the technology has evolved in and of its own right and has been enhanced through the shared experiences of the Hauser, Somycel, International and Swayne spawn-making teams, creating a broad knowledge base from which to encourage further advances in the art of strain maintenance, inoculum production and spawn making.
