Q: I was looking to order CCMP1316 and was wondering if there are any significant differences between the start culture and 1L mass culture (density, level of sterility, etc)?
A: The only difference is in the ship time. Starter cultures are ~2 weeks, 1L cultures may take a couple weeks more.
Q: And do you still have these cultures at a salinity around 32ppt?
A: Yes, our marine cultures are at ~32ppt.
