Why can't I directly purchase this strain online?

Instead of omitting UTEX LB 2690 Bornetella sphaerica and similar strains from the online catalog preventing access to the scientific community, UTEX lists these strains as requiring researchers to contact us first. This allows us to check the health of the strain in question, review how much material is available, and verify if UTEX is able to provide enough for the request before the order is placed.
