UTEX B 84
Pediastrum tetras

*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: 84
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Pediastrum tetras
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: Innsbruck,
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: V. Czurda (1932)
Isolator Number: P.1 aka Prague 216
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 261/6 Pediastrum sp.; SAG 261-6; ATCC 30435; UTCC LB 115
Also Known As:
Notes: 1976 renamed (George 1976)

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.
