UTEX 1639
Chlorogonium elongatum

*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: 1639
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlorogonium elongatum
Media: Euglena Medium
Origin: Schickley, Nebraska, USA
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: P. Kugrens
Isolator Number: N-5
Deposition: R. Carefoot (Fall 1967)
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: 10 chromosomes; no detectable hydrogen photoproduction (Brand et al. 1989); phylogeny (Nozaki et al. 1998a)

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.
