UTEX 1728
Pandorina morum

*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: 1728
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Pandorina morum
Media: Soil Extract
Origin: Gurmiwangla,
Description of Location: pond soil
Type Culture: No
Collection: T. Ichimura
Isolation: E. Palmer
Isolator Number: N8-1, syngen XVIII
Deposition: A. Wilbois Coleman
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: mates with UTEX 1729; grows in dark on acetate; 10/01: original culture lost; 11/01: replacement from A. Coleman

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.
