Description

Every culture is guaranteed for purity and genera. Fungi can help teach many topics in ecology, genetics, biochemistry, and other disciplines. They are important decomposers, helping recycle organic materials in food webs, which makes them great subjects for ecological studies. Special packaging and transportation costs are extra.

Penicillium chrysogenum is a source of antibiotics, especially penicillin. It occurs naturally on salted food products and water-damaged wood. Optimal growth medium is potato dextrose agar; optimal growth temperature is 25° C. MicroKwik Culture® is a Carolina trademark for freeze-dried, viable fungi with medium.
