New! NASA/NCAS #PLUVI Teaching Kit
Microalgae experiments conducted on the ISS studied the effects of microgravity on UTEX 2505. NCAS is engaging community colleges across the US to conduct studies for comparison with the in-orbit investigation.
2019 Algae Express. Refreshed.
The list of strains has been refreshed with some new additions and also expanded to now include the Top 10 most requested strains at UTEX. These cultures are axenic and maintained on an agar slant.
RGB-LED Lighting Platform
Designed for bench-scale experimentation and maintenance of stock cultures used to seed larger photobioreactors. The customizable LEDs surround the 500-mL or 2-Liter photobioreactors.
The low cost, lab-scale photobioreactors have a design optimized for delivering light to cultures to maximize growth and accumulation rates. They can be used in direct sunlight or as plug and play modules within a spectral illumination .
New! DNA Barcoding Teaching Kit
The proliferation of readily available and relatively inexpensive PCR and DNA sequencing technologies has made DNA barcoding an accessible means of identifying microalgae.
