CORONA-Crisis: Note on SAG-Service

(Göttingen, 8th of July 2020)

Due to the current situation regarding the spread of SARS-coronavirus-2 Georg-August-University Göttingen is still operating in a reduced level.
Beside maintenance of Culture Collection of algae at Georg-August-University Göttingen (SAG) we can offer our service for external users now.


  • Shipment of algal cultures started again, but handling of requests and orders may still be delayed. We cannot guarantee any scheduled algal shipments.
  • Please note that for international shipments specific problems may need to be solved before we can send living algal cultures and shipments costs could raise substantially.
  • The SAG still provides all other services, e.g. consulting or digital information (see SAG database www.sagdb.uni-goettingen.de), in the best possible way. Accessibility by phone maybe reduced.
  • SAG is still not open for guided tours or visits.



We thank you for your understanding in this special situation and wish you to stay healthy.

On behalf of the SAG team
Dr. Maike Lorenz (Curator)
