Stock-Keeping Service


Drosophila Stock-Keeping Service

We provide a Drosophila stock-keeping service for UK fly groups. Stocks are kept at 18oC (unless otherwise requested) and are transferred on a 5-week cycle (i.e. 10 transfers/year). Stocks are made available to the user at any time during the working week and we will mail your stocks to anywhere in the world, free of charge, on your request. There is the option to maintain 1 or 2 tubes of each stock (the single tube option is for less ‘valuable’ stocks e.g. those that are easily obtainable from other sources).
