The Connecticut Valley Difference
Over 65 years ago our founder, Marschall P. Lohr, began culturing protozoa and algae from local ponds for use as educational specimens. Area science teachers, impressed with the consistent high quality of the cultures, eagerly supported Mr. Lohr's company. Since then, Connecticut Valley Biological has continued to build a reputation for excellence that now covers over 10,000 unconditionally guaranteed products used for teaching a wide range of topics, in biology and life science as well as earth and space science.
Appreciative educators still insist on reliable Connecticut Valley specimens. Today, we also help them supplement their students' direct observations with a wide variety of related materials.
Still family-owned, Connecticut Valley Biological remains committed to providing the high level of service widely recognized by our thousands of loyal customers. We take great pride in knowing that in elementary through college levels, teachers depend on our materials to help their students experience the thrill of scientific discovery.
