UTEX B 277
Coccomyxa solarinae var. saccatae

*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: 277
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Coccomyxa solarinae var. saccatae
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin: Grosser St. Bernhard, Switzerland
Description of Location: phycobiont of lichen Solorina saccata
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: R. Chodat (before 1990)
Isolator Number: 75
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 216/12 C. solarinae saccatae; SAG 216-12 C. solarinae saccatae
Also Known As:
Notes: to CCAP from Jaag as 189; (Jaag 1933)

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.
