Marine Microalgae Disc Cultures
We offer several species of microalgae cultures provided on sterile agar in convenient petri dishes. They can survive over 6 months, eliminating the need to maintain liquid cultures. They are extremely easy to use.
Simply fill the petri dish with sterile salt water, cover and place the disc under moderate light for 12 to 24 hours. Algal cells can then be gently rubbed off the agar plate using a sterile cotton swab (LV4) and placed in 500–2,000 ml of sterile, fertilized culture water.
Store microalgae petri dish cultures in a cool (60–75°F), dark place and keep sealed until use. Weigh 4 oz. Ship Next Day Air.
