Czeum Project Ordering

Ordering

Cultures can be obtained from the CZEUM for a charge of $100 per culture. Discounts may be applied to larger orders. Recipients are expected to cover the cost of shipping. To browse available cultures, please navigate to the CZEUM database.

To make a culture request, please fill out the Materials Request Form and email the completed form to Timothy James (tyjames@umich.edu). A CZEUM staff member will contact you shortly thereafter to discuss the culture(s) of interest. Once we have confirmed your request and payment method, we will begin the revitalization process. Please understand that these isolates are cryopreserved, and culture revitalizations, though often quick, can take up to 4-6 weeks.
