Bulk Microalgae



UTEX can provide select microalgal strains as bulk cultures in 500 mL and 1 L quantities.  

 Not all UTEX strains can be grown in liquid medium and some cannot be cultured to high density. 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. 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. For larger volumes, please inquire on the Algae Culturing Facility page.

IMPORTANT:
Since UTEX does not maintain algal cultures in large volumes, each bulk culture 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.
