UTEX B 181
Trebouxia flava

*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: 181
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Trebouxia flava
Media: Trebouxia Medium
Origin: Delft,
Description of Location: from lichen Physcia pulverulenta
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: A. Quispel
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 219/1C
Also Known As: Cystococcus humicola
Notes: 1955 renamed Trebouxia sp. (Starr 1955c); 1975 renamed (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.
