Ordering Stocks


The Cornell University Drosophila Species Stock Center provides subcultures of over 250 different Drosophila species. While the basic operating expenses of the Stock Center are funded by the National Science Foundation, we are required to charge for the stocks to recover some of the costs. The charge for a subculture of all available species is $40 plus shipping. For each live stock ordered we send one vial containing eggs and larvae, and one vial containing ~30-50 adults.

In addition to the permanent collection, the Stock Center periodically offers recent collections of isofemale lines on a limited-time basis. Investigators lacking grant support may petition the Stock Center for a waiver of fees by contacting the Stock Center director.

To view our collection, please visit our new website drosophilaspecies.com

***Processing takes around 5 days after receiving payment for stock to be ready for shipment. Shipping will take around 3 business days. We only ship on Mondays, so try to get your orders in before the previous Wednesday. If you are paying with a PO, please be aware this could delay your shipment until payment has been received.***

Please note that once the order is sent out, it is the responsibility of the shipping carrier to ensure guarantees on shipments are met.
