Bacterial dyes

Hello everyone,

I would love to grow some pigment producing bacteria during my product design study.
Does anyone know where I can purchase a culture of Janthinobacterium lividum, Streptomyces coelicolor etc.? Or maybe it is also possible to extract a string from soil samples myself?

Really hoping to get some advice

Hello ClaraEscobar

I dont know about the bacteries your talking about
But i remeber when i was a child i made an experiment to pu a lemon inside a jar, and it became covered of kaki spores, i tought about to do pigment… but never try (if it stays long time the same color in the light…) interesting thread !
