New Green Deal:

As part of the effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, The University of Texas at Austin has implemented a mandatory, campus-wide reduction of laboratory activities to essential operations. In keeping with this mandate, there will be a temporary pause in the distribution of all products from the UTEX Culture Collection of Algae. During this pause, UTEX products will be available for advance purchase at a discounted rate  no discount code required. All orders will be scheduled for delivery when we resume normal operations.

UTEX provides a suite of analytical services for the identification and biochemical characterization of microalgae.

Advanced biochemical services are available for the characterization of algae. Strain Identification is achieved through microscopy, DNA barcoding and sequencing methods. The analysis of microalgal biomass includes common metrics such as culture dry weight (DW), ash-free dry weight (AFDW), and moisture content, as well as the bulk analysis of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and metabolic profiling of substituents.
