UTEX 894
Trebouxia glomerata

*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: 894
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Trebouxia glomerata
Media: Trebouxia Medium
Origin: Mt Wachusett, Princeton, Massachusetts, USA
Description of Location: as lichen Stereocaulon evolutoides from rock
Type Culture: No
Collection: (4/28/57)
Isolation: V. Ahmadjian (5/2/57)
Isolator Number: 1 Trebouxia sp.
Deposition: (before 1959)
Relatives: SAG 33.85
Also Known As: T. irregularis (Chodat) Hildreth et Ahmadjian
Notes: 1960 renamed (V. Ahmadjian 1960, pers. comm.); (Archibald 1975)

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.
