Bulk Microalgae Cultures
UTEX sells living microalgae in bulk culture volumes. We will provide
500-ml or 1-liter quantities of select strains. Although efforts are
made to minimize contamination, a low-level of bacteria is likely to be
present in bulk cultures, even when inoculated from axenic stocks.
Not all UTEX strains can be grown in liquid medium and some cannot be cultured
to high density. We will indicate to the requester whether a bulk
culture can be grown to a reasonably high density and will provide an
estimated shipping date within two weeks of receiving an order. Please
UTEX for strain availability.
Examples of UTEX strains that can be grown to high density:
|| Neochloris oleoabundans
|| Chlorella vulgaris
|| Dunaliella tertiolecta
|| Selenastrum capricornutum
|| Haematococcus pluvialis
|| Scenedesmus dimorphus
|| Nannochloropsis oculata
|| Thalassiosira sp.
|| Spirulina platensis
|| Skeletonema costatum
Since UTEX does not maintain
algal cultures in large volumes, each bulk is inoculated and grown when an
order is placed and will take a minimum of 4 weeks before delivery.
UTEX will notify customers by email if their bulk culture(s) will be sent out
sooner or later than originally estimated.
