Ordering Tetrahymena Strains

Finding strains
The strains currently available for ordering from the Stock Center are listed here, or you can interactively search for specific information. If you do not see what you want, contact us or check again at a later date, since the list of available lines is updated as new strains are deposited.

Cost
Individual strains are $35 academic / $70 commercial, and the mating type panel is $175 / $350. Shipping varies by country and represents our cost to ship via FedEx Standard Overnight within the US and via FedEx International Priority outside the US.

These fees are not meant to be an impediment to research, so academic researchers and educators without funding should contact us.

Placing orders
To order strains, go to our online order form. The page will open in a new window so that you can search for strains in the original window and then paste stock ids into the order form.

Shipping
Cells are shipped as live cultures via FedEx Standard Overnight to US addresses or FedEx International Priority overseas.

Payment
You may pay by purchase order, credit card (VISA or MasterCard), or wire transfer. We will include an invoice and a credit card slip with cells shipping to US locations. International orders will receive a PDF of the invoice and credit card slip via email.

If you wish to pay by credit card, fill out the slip and fax or mail it to us. Please do not send us your credit card information by email! If you wish to pay by wire transfer, email us for bank details.
