UTEX B 331
Ulothrix confervicola

*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: 331
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Ulothrix confervicola
Media: Volvox Medium
Origin: Madison, Wisconsin, USA
Description of Location:
Type Culture: Yes
Collection: Barlow
Isolation: E.G. Pringsheim
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 386/2; SAG 386-2
Also Known As: Uronema confervicolum
Notes: cytological taxonomy (Stewart et al. 1973); 1962 renamed (Mattox & Bold 1962)

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.
