The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 21 days. If interested, please contact the CCMP for the cryopreservation methods (freezing and/or thawing protocols).
Note that aquaculture strains are always maintained as actively growing cultures, even if also cryogenically stored. Therefore, aquaculture strains (see aquaculture express ordering on the CCMP home page) can be shipped immediately upon request.
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.
