UTEX B 296
Botrydiopsis intercedens

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: 296
Class: Xanthophyceae
Strain: Botrydiopsis intercedens
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection: W. Vischer
Isolation: E.G. Pringsheim
Isolator Number: Basel 171
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 806/3 aka Geneva (Genf) 522; SAG 806-3; CAUP D301
Also Known As: Pleurochloris pachychlamis (Pascher 1939)
Notes: flagella/positive autofluorescence (Kawai & Inouye 1989); glycolate oxidase (Suzuki et al. 1991)

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.
