UTEX B 98
Spongiochloris spongiosa

*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: 98
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Spongiochloris spongiosa
Media: Soil Extract Medium
Origin: Breckland, Cambridge, England
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection: R. John
Isolation: E.G. Pringsheim
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 3/2a [dec.]
Also Known As: Asterococcus terrestris
Notes: 1955 renamed (Starr 1955c)

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.
