UTEX B 818
Platymonas sp.

*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: 818
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Platymonas sp.
Media: F/2 Medium
Origin: Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA
Description of Location: Great Pond
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: R.R.L. Guillard (1954)
Isolator Number: Milford 1
Deposition: (11/56)
Relatives: CCAP 66/37; CCMP896; WHOI Platy-1; CCMP PLATY1
Also Known As: Tetraselmis levis
Notes:

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.
