Chlorella is a genus of single-cell green algae belonging to the phylum Chlorophyta. It is spherical in shape, about 2 to 10 μm in diameter, and is without flagella. Chlorella contains the green photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll-a and -b in its chloroplast. Through photosynthesis, it multiplies rapidly, requiring only carbon dioxide, water, sunlight, and a small amount of minerals to reproduce.
The name Chlorella is taken from the Greek, chloros, meaning green, and the Latin diminutive suffix ella, meaning small. German biochemist and cell physiologist Otto Heinrich Warburg, awarded with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1931 for his research on cell respiration, also studied photosynthesis in Chlorella. In 1961, Melvin Calvin of the University of California received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his research on the pathways of carbon dioxide assimilation in plants using Chlorella.
Many people believe Chlorella can serve as a potential source of food and energy because its photosynthetic efficiency can, in theory, reach 8%,comparable with other highly efficient crops such as sugar cane.
$ 8.00Isochrysis galbana is a microalga. It is the type species of the genus Isochrysis. It is an outstanding food for various bivalve larvae. and is now widely cultured for use in the bivalve aquaculture industry. This unicellular is investigated for its high amount of Fucoxanthin (18.23 mg/g dried sample). View full product details
$ 8.00Nannochloropsis is a genus of alga within the heterokont line of eukaryotes, that is being investigated for biofuel production. Some Nannochloropsis species have been shown to be suitable for algal biofuel production due to its ease of growth and high oil content (28.7% of dry weight), mainly unsaturated fatty acids and a significant percentage of palmitic acid. It also contains enough unsaturated fatty acid linolenic acid and polyunsaturated acid (>4 double bonds) for a quality biodiesel. View full product details
$ 8.00The microalga Porphyridium sp. (Rhodophyta) is a potential source for several products like fatty acids, lipids, cell-wall polysaccharides and pigments . The polysaccharides of this species are sulphated and their structure gives rise to some unique properties that could lead to a broad range of industrial and pharmaceutical applications. Additionally, P. cruentum biomass contains carbohydrates of up to 57 % have been reported. Thus, the combined amount of carbohydrates in biomass and exopolysaccharides of this microalga could potentially provide the source for bio-fuel and pharmaceutical. View full product details

Algae survey kit includes 1.5ml culture and culture booklet:
Our scientists have been working with algae for over a decade. This is a premium culture set that is very well taken care of. It is robust and will perform in your laboratory or classroom.
$ 2.00The Secchi Stick is a simple analytical device to determine optical density of a liquid. The depth at which the disk is no longer visible is taken as a measure of the transparency of the water. This measure is known as the Secchi depth and is related to water turbidity. We have a video on it's operation on youtube. View full product details
Algae cultures are sensitive to pH (acid/alkaline) and will grow within certain pH ranges. We recommend that you have a pH meter handy for confirming pH.
This economical pH meter is easy-to-use for quick and reliable pH measurements.
Includes: meter complete with protective cap, calibration screwdriver, batteries, instructions, and powdered calibration standards.
|Range:||0.0 - 14.0 pH|
|Accuracy:||± 0.1 pH|
1 Point (7.0 pH)
|Probe:||Glass (Not replacable)|
|Environment:||32° - 122°F / 0° - 50°C; max RH 95%|
|Battery Life:||700 hours of use|
|Battery Type:||3 x 1.5V alkaline (Included)|
Important: Like all economy pH testers, our basic meter uses a glass electrode sensor, which is unprotected and susceptible to breakage. This sensor must be handled with extreme care and stored in a buffer solution. If the sensor is broken it cannot be replaced. If the sensor is allowed to dry out it may affect the accuracy of the meter readings.View full product details

Bioluminescent dinoflagellate is one of the coolest microalgae.
This strain is tricky to culture (prone to bacterial contamination), so we do not offer culturing kits at this time, only the culture itself.View full product details
