UTEX B 384
Nostoc punctiforme

*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: 384
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Nostoc punctiforme
Media: BG-11(-N) Medium
Origin: Utrecht,
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: E.C. Wassink
Isolator Number:
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 1453/3; SAG B 1453-3
Also Known As: N. commune
Notes: to CCAP from Utrecht P 1; 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.
