The FGSC has several strains of N. crassa that would 
be appropriate for the situation where contamination 
poses a large threat.  

We have aconidial strains eg FGSC #'s 3262 (acon-2) or
4317 (fl(or)).
Additionally, we have strains that are entirely lacking
in cell walls, eg "slime" FGSC # 1118.
This last strain grows as spheroplasts or plasmodia and
would be unlikely to contaminate anything.

More information about these strains can be found at the 
FGSC web site:
