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.

Why can't I directly purchase this strain online?

Instead of omitting UTEX LB 2703 Acicularia schenckii 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.
