UTEX B 428
Oscillatoria tenuis

*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: 428
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Oscillatoria tenuis
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin: Utrecht,
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: A. Manten
Isolator Number: Utrecht P 27
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP B 1459/4; PCC 9107
Also Known As: Microcoleus vaginatus var. radiatus (Baker & Bold 1970); Oscillatoria sp.
Notes: 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.
