UTEX B 382
Nostoc calcicola



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 382
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Nostoc calcicola
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin: Utrecht,
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: A. Manten
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 1453/1; SAG B 1453-1
Also Known As: N. ellipsosporum
Notes: to CCAP from Utrecht P 33; grown in shaded light

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.
