Our microbiology dept. uses them in cronic pass/fail testing for
industrial effluents. Ours are ordered from the EPA. They are
extremely difficult to keep, even under laboratory conditions. They
also have a short (< 30 days) lifespan and eat only certain strains
of algae. Sorry, don't know of any feasible sources.
