UTEX 2915
Mychonastes homosphaera

*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: 2915
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Mychonastes homosphaera
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: Lake Erken,
Description of Location:
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: W. Rodhe
Isolator Number: 1622a
Deposition: CAUP (9/18/06)
Relatives: CAUP H6501; CCAP 211/8e
Also Known As: Chlorella pyrenoidosa
Notes:

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.
