Volumes Prepared for Shipment of Living Algal Strains:

  • Agar Strains (designated with 'B'-prefix or does not have a prefix in the UTEX Number): 
    • Screw-cap tubes filled with 10-mL of slanted agar media are inoculated on the surface with an aliquot of the strain.
  • Liquid Strains (designated with 'L'- or 'LB'-prefix in the UTEX Number): 
    • Approximately 15-mL aliquots of the algal strain maintained in liquid are transferred to screw-cap tubes for shipment.
