UTEX B 67
Trebouxia magna

*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: 67
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Trebouxia magna
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin:
Description of Location: from lichen Cladonia sp.as Chlorococcum humicola
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: M.W. Beijerink (before 1948)
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 213/3; SAG 100.80; ATCC 30426; IAM C-200; CCMEE 532; CAUP H1003
Also Known As: Chlorococcum sociabile; Chlorococcum humicola
Notes: to CCAP from Delft; renamed in 1975 (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.
