UTEX B 279
Coccomyxa viridis

Due to the upcoming Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after November 15, 2017 for any Bulk Microalgae, Freshwater Diatoms, and strains kept in cryopreservation (cryo only-designated and NAABB strains), will not ship until early February 2018.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 279
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Coccomyxa viridis
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin:
Description of Location: epiphytic on lichen Sphaerophorus coralloides
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: R. Chodat
Isolator Number: 84
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 216/14; SAG 216-14
Also Known As:
Notes: to CCAP from O. Jaag as 192; (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.
