About Algae Research Supply

Our research staff has been culturing algae since January of 2000, supported spirulina farmers on six of our seven continents on Earth, and had our cultures sent to space… three times!!!

We have helped tens of thousands of students, hundreds of schools and universities (including Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Texas A&M, UCSD, and more).

Growing algae is a great platform for experimentation and harvesting biomass is super rewarding (we dare you not to say “Green Gold!” when you are done).

    Definitely the best kit to start spirulina farming! Everything is high quality, and the customer support is fantastic! Unfortunately the package came in damaged due to the carrier USPS, however, I easily got everything I needed replaced.
