UTEX B 487
Plectonema boryanum

*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: 487
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Plectonema boryanum
Media: BG-11 Medium
Origin:
Description of Location:
Type Culture: No
Collection: M.T. Dyar
Isolation: M.B. Allen
Isolator Number: B.G. 16, strain 6 Lyngbya sp.
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: UTEX 596; CCAP 1446/3
Also Known As: Schizothrix calcicola var. glomerulata (Baker & Bold 1970); Schizothrix calcicola var amorpha; Lyngbya sp.
Notes: (Safferman & Morris 1963); 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.
