Rated 1 out of 5 by from High contamination by rotifers Bought two stentor samples and each of them had high number of rotifers . In less than a week, the culture had an overpopulation of rotifers and it was difficult to pick out individual stentors without taking along some rotifers. Disapppointing since I had called up carolina to check if they had rotifer contamination prior to ordering.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from rotifer-rich, Stentor-poor The last two times we have purchased Stentor from your company (last August and this past week), the culture has been nearly (August) or completely (last week) overrun by rotifers. I notice another reviewer had the same issue -- not good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from too many Rotifer contaminants the Stentor cultures were overgrown with Rotifers within days; such a huge cell can easily be isolated and cultured in a more pure fashion; I had to do this and it required much time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for novice microscope users Stentor are great for students who are just learning to locate organisms under the compound microscope. Again this year, every student was successful in locating them and getting them focused under high magnification. Carolina shipped viable organisms, sending them with a warm-pack here in January. Stentor are easy to locate when students pick up a small piece of green debris in the jar. Most are attached by their stalk to debris. When Under medium and high magnification, students see active cilia around Stentor's rim. Stentor will also "jerk" back, demonstrating some reflexive response to the environment. If you are hesitant to order living microbes because you aren't great at locating them yourself, Stentor is an excellent "starter" organism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great specimen These specimens were very engaging for our students. We could see them "eating" and also searching for new places to anchor so, although they are usually sessile, the students could see how they "move" and eat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALWAYS THE FAVORITE…The MIGHTY Stentor When my high school Microbiology (sophomore) classes get to Protists, I am excited to share 10 living protozoans and algae with them. Stentor is always the favorite. Students marvel at the various shapes they can become and it is always great fun to watch them feed on Euglena and Blepharisma. I had a student who came in during lunch in his junior and senior year when Stentor arrived. The cultures are always healthy and plentiful.
