Alternatively Chlorella can be used instead of blood in haemocytometers. Chlorella is spherical and non-motile and has been extensively used in biotecnology.

I am using this for culturing chlorella. I am also using the growth medium, which again I bought from Darwin. It has been 3 days so far and I can see good progress in the culture as it turns into dark green.
Very good quality and quick shipping
Excellent service. algae worked perfectly for the photosynthesis experiment we were carrying out.
