UTEX B 119
Chlorococcum hypnosporum

*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: 119
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlorococcum hypnosporum
Media: Bristol Medium
Origin: Bledsoe Co., Tennessee, USA
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: R.C. Starr
Isolator Number: F35-1
Deposition: R.C. Starr (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 213/6; SAG 213-6; CAUP H 806
Also Known As:
Notes: (Starr 1955c); antibacterial activity (Cannell et al. 1988b); flagellar apparatus (Watanabe & Floyd 1989d)

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.
