Given the difficulties that a "hobbyist or 
student" can generate by playing around with 
microorganisms about which they know little or 
nothing, I would not suggest that that such 
purchases should be made by individuals. 
Bacteria, fungi and yeasts can be nasty if not 
handled properly with appropriate supervision, and 
handling in make-shift facilities almost 
guarantees that problems of various sorts will arise.
