Protozoa

The Protozoa are a diverse group of eukaryotic, heterotrophic organisms. The unicellular protist cell contains a nucleus, food and contractile vacuole/s and membrane bound organelles. Some cells have flagella, cilia or pseudopodia for locomotion. Reproduction in protists can be both asexual and sexual. The simple cellular organization distinguishes the protists from other eukaryotes. They live in both damp terrestrial and aquatic habitats. PLEASE NOTE: Our cultures are generally used for teaching in schools, undergraduate classes and for small projects. If cultures are required for postgraduate research or commercial purposes then we advise users to independently verify indentification prior tp use. We do not guarantee correct identification of any of our strains.
