“Parameciavap Co. has provided us with live paramecium for many years. Their delivery is extremely reliable and the food is of excellent quality. We use paramecium not only as a food source for our larval zebrafish but also in feeding behavioral assays. We can count on Parameciavap Co to meet our live food needs every month. They have been a delight to work with and look forward to a long relationship with them.”

“I have been working with Parameciavap.Co for the last 14 years. I have raised countless of zebrafish generations, wild type and transgenic fish alike using Vladimir Apekin's paramecia. The quality of his paramecia culture is exceptional. It is of high quality and always clear of any waste. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to raise some larvae.”
