To ensure good quality and health of the cultures identified for use in studies, these are maintained on site under conditions similar to those required for the test. This also reduces the lead time to start a study.
Cultures are maintained using good aseptic technique. A suitable area for culturing within the facility is allocated to prevent microbiological or chemical contamination. Environmental parameters can be individually tailored to meet the requirements of the species in terms of the lighting and temperature.
We are able to offer studies with a range of freshwater algal species including, but not limited to:
