Rated 4 out of 5 by from Volvox very fresh within a day or two The Volvox were nice and big and were plentiful if used within 2 days of receipt. I've put some in the refrigerator over the weekend to keep them going a bit longer, however, Volvox just don't last long without constant attention and changes in Volvox media.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Green "Death Stars'" Star wars was recently released and these colonies of cells are an excellent way to bridge the Science field with Sci Fi. The volvox colonies I got from you were perfectly revolving little Death Star shaped microorganisms. Very nicely packaged and I thank you ! Kids loved em!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good condition upon arrival, use quickly I have ordered these multiple times for science labs. They always arrive alive, healthy and on time. My main concern is that you have to use them quickly - they do not survive as long as the other cultures I generally order. If I am going to use the volvox for an entire week of labs, I will generally order half to arrive the Friday before and half to arrive the Wednesday of the lab week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Volvox! This Volvox globator sample was wonderful! Lovely, healthy colonies that the students were able to study thoroughly and easily. In fact, even now weeks later, it is still going strong!
