UTEX B 868
Pandorina morum

ATTENTION:

Due to the upcoming 2018 Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after the stated deadlines will not ship until 2019 (review expected shipping estimates).

*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: 868
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Pandorina morum
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: Bloomington, Indiana, USA
Description of Location: pond
Type Culture: No
Collection: (10/29/56)
Isolation: A. Wilbois Coleman
Isolator Number: In-62-7, syngen VIII
Deposition:
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: heterothallic; 10/01: original culture lost; 11/01: replacement from A. Coleman; (Coleman 1959, 1963, Coleman & Zollner 1977, Schagerl et al. 1999)

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.
