In this Science Buddies project, you'll use a live specimen to investigate how a specific freshwater organism, Daphnia magna, responds to the exposure to different concentrations of nanosilver. You can customize your materials to include the live samples, magnifier, pond water, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.

Do you know why enzymes are oftentimes called the workhorses of biochemistry? It's because they can speed up a wide variety of chemical reactions, and chemists and biologists use enzymes to do all kinds of jobs. In this project, pectinase, an enzyme frequently used in the food industry, will be used to extract juice from apples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Alive & Well Not one single DOA! Secure packaging. Little Daphnia arrived swimming happily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lifeless Pond Water Unfortunately, the cultures we carefully prepared turned out to be lifeless. There are multiple factors that could have led to these results, but I can't help but wonder if it was the pond water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expectations vs Reality The ordering and shipment process were expeditious and concise. I received a generally "live" shipment of daphnia... though there were about as many dead organisms as there were live. I am not sure if it was "just their time" or a harvesting issue that caused the casualties. The ones that did survive were used to start a colony, of which none of the magna survived longer than 48 hrs. The smaller species did proliferate after a period of stagnation and have been going strong since. Overall, I did find that the organisms were "sound" and of good constitution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daphnia are great against pond algae Water is crystal clear, unlike the years when we skipped the daphnia. Unfortunately fish love them so much you can't really keep them in a pond with fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So healthy! I bought the culture about two months ago and had to breed them to use for an experiment. They were so healthy I had a tank full in a matter of days. Will definitely order from again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Daphnia Magna My son's science experiment left a jar full of daphnia magna survivors which we did not have the heart to kill, so we started feeding them yeast and they are thriving... The pond water we ordered seems perfect for them.
