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: We have got a algue reactor and want to harvast a large amount of Spirulina algue. Would you recommend this one to start with? CCMP796 1L Mass Culture
A: CCMP1295 is also a Spirulina that is not in cryo and would take less time to prepare 1L.
