Quality and Purity:
To ensure the highest quality and purity standards, we rigorously enforce strict separation protocols and best practices. Our live rotifers and copepods are cultivated and processed in distinct facilities to prevent cross-contamination.
Despite these precautions, the robust nature of copepods means they can sometimes find their way into rotifer cultures, potentially via the culturing of water or environmental factors. Although this is an uncommon event, it's not entirely impossible. Therefore, on rare occasions, you might notice a few stray copepod nauplii among the rotifers.
