Support Services and Products

Outsource to the Experts

The relationships, expertise, and capabilities that drive research and development at CAI also enable us to offer world-class, standardized fee-for-use services and products. This enables our clients to cost-efficiently offload some of the more complex aspects of working with algae.

Maintaining a private collection of algae takes time and dedicated resources. Building out your own laboratory and greenhouse infrastructure can be exorbitant. Cryopreservation takes up a staggering amount of resources. Our services can help, including:

Well-characterized Microalgae, Cyanobacteria, and Macroalgae Cultures

Through our connection to NCMA, you have access to over 3,800 strains of microalgae and macroalgae. This collection is a treasure trove of genetic, chemical, and biological opportunity.

Biomaterial Storage and Preservation

Whether you need to cryopreserve biological material at an International Depositary Authority for patent procedure or would simply prefer to do so outside of your facilities, our state-of-the-art laboratory and dedicated resources have you covered. In addition to patent deposit, we can also preserve your material as a Private Collection, either in cryopreservation or perpetual liquid culture.
