Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Ordered this for a demo of quorum sensing in a local middle school. Even after being shipped and sitting on my porch in the middle of a Nebraska winter cold snap all of our students were able to sub culture and see bioluminescence. They were SO excited! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic I order this culture for a seminar on bioluminescence. I subcultured the mother tube in the supplied ones and on agar plates I made. I wrote keywords on the plates. Very nice effect on the audience. I sub cultured it for month...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to culture I bought this product for a small independent science research class. Students were able to culture the bacterial quite easily. They are hardy and easy to grow. The bioluminescence is faint but can be seen in a dark room.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product was ineffective The original culture was not apparent. After attempting to transfer to new agar tube, nothing happened. I suspect I was erroneously sent a package that had no living cultures.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Before you commit to purchasing... I loved the idea of cultivating my very own specimens of Vibrio Fischeri. For one reason or another, Carolina Bio. was the only supplier of cultures I could find. When the cultures arrived, I followed the very vague and nondescriptive instructions. Instead of taking a max of 18 hours to begin bioluminescence, they took 3 days. Also, four tubes of agar were not sealed properly during the shipment process, and thus, the bacteria did not grow in these tubes. It was still neat to observe the bioluminescence, but I don't know. Maybe my expectations were too high. I would say that because of the lack of instructions, this kit should be labeled "medium difficulty," and/or the instructions really should be improved. It wasn't a terrible experience, but I believe it could have been better. If I knew a colleague who was interested in this particular specimen, I would probably suggest this kit and give him some advice on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creatures from "Avatar"! Kidding aside, this is a great product. Quite easy to grow, if only I'm allowed to keep them generating. Something fun for everyone to try, not just kids.
