Biological Specimens - Protozoa (Live)


The following protist cultures are selected for their appeal in teaching protistology in schools, colleges and universities. Many species are particularly amenable for use in student projects for studying feeding, reproduction, motility organelles, nuclear apparatus and encystment. All supplied in 30ml cultures, (sufficient for up to 30 students), except the jar of mixed protozoa which offers a great selection of common protozoa suitable for a range of experiments. Amoeba Proteus (30ml) - A very large and vigorous strain which displays protoplasmic streaming (cyclosis), prey encapsulation and phagocytosis. An excellent textbook species for demonstrating pseudopodia and amoebae morphology. Euglina Gracilis (30ml) - Typical green phytoflagellate for illustrating flagellate motility and photoautotrophic nutrition. The distinct eyespot (stigma) stimulates the cells phototactic response towards moderate light intensity. Paramecium Caudatum (30ml) - The ‘slipper animalcule’ named after the resemblance of its pellicle to the shape of a slipper. Probably the most popular textbook species for illustrating ciliate morphology and behavioural traits. Although the organism is highly motile our cultures often contain sufficiently dense populations for continual observation under the microscope. Mixed Protozoa (50ml) - A jar of mixed curricula protozoa, including Amoeba, Paramecium, Euglena, Stentor, Blepharisma, Vorticella and Euplotes, etc. The culture provides a visually exciting introduction to the diversity of the ciliates, flagellates and amoebae.
