UTEX 157
Botrydium cystosum

*Cryo Only cultures are strains that are not kept in active circulation and therefore require a 4-week minimum processing time period to thaw, grow out, and check viability before shipment.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 157
Class: Xanthophyceae
Strain: Botrydium cystosum
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: Basel,
Description of Location: garden soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: W. Vischer (1936-7)
Isolator Number: Basel 196a
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 805/2; SAG 805-2; ATCC 30589
Also Known As:
Notes: (Vischer 1938)

Cryopreservation Conditions

Temperature: -190 °C
Light source: Not Applicable
Intensity: Not Applicable
Periodicity: Not Applicable

Cryopreservation stabilizes genomic integrity, preserves culture quality, minimizes maintenance costs and reduces the risk of catastrophic loss. A broad variety of techniques employed at the CCAP, at UTEX, and elsewhere, can be found in Day, J.G. and Brand, J.J. Cryopreservation Methods for Maintaining Microalgal Cultures, in Algal Culturing Techniques, ed. R. A. Andersen, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2006. A relatively simple method that uses a minimum of specialized equipment, yet allows a large variety of microalgae to be cryopreserved with high viability, can be found on the Cryopreservation of Microalgae page.
