UTEX 2633
Hormidium sp.

Important Order Deadlines:

Orders for strains that are maintained only in cryopreservation that were placed before October 26th, 2018, will ship on November 26th, 2018. Please view more information here.

*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: 2633
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Hormidium sp.
Media: Soil Extract Medium
Origin:
Description of Location: sporangiophores of lichen-like fungus Multiclavula corynoides
Type Culture: No
Collection: Ming-jou Lai (5/8/94)
Isolation: R.A. Lewin (1994)
Isolator Number:
Deposition: R.A. Lewin (10/16/95)
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: (pers. Comm, E. Tschermak-Woess to R.A. Lewin) new cultures produce short straight filaments and singlecells; superannuated cultures (2-5 months old) exhibit contorted filaments which die and turn colorless, looking fungus-like; collected as sporangiophores of lichen-like fungus Multiclavula corynoides; deposited as 12.01

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.
