UTEX B 197
Gonium sociale var. sociale

*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: 197
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Gonium sociale var. sociale
Media: Volvocacean Medium
Origin: Berlin,
Description of Location:
Type Culture: Yes
Collection: M. Hartman
Isolation: H. Meyer
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 32/3 G. sociale; SAG 32-3
Also Known As: Gonium tetras
Notes: to CCAP from Hartmann; 1959 renamed (Stein 1959); detectable hydrogen photoproduction (Brand et al. 1989)

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.
