UTEX does not have any distributors for our products and algal cultures. All orders must be placed through the UTEX Culture Collection of Algae and are grown and shipped by UTEX Staff from our Collection, located on the main University of Texas at Austin campus. We do not provide guarantees to the quality or authenticity of UTEX-designated strains, nor will they be eligible for replacement under the replacement policy, if obtained from anywhere other than the UTEX Culture Collection of Algae.
