UTEX B 1338
Chlamydomonas noctigama

Due to the upcoming Winter Holiday closures, orders placed after November 15, 2017 for any Bulk Microalgae, Freshwater Diatoms, and strains kept in cryopreservation (cryo only-designated and NAABB strains), will not ship until early February 2018.



Algae Detail

UTEX Number: 1338
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlamydomonas noctigama
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: High Tatra Mts,
Description of Location: soil
Type Culture: Yes
Collection:
Isolation: F. Hindˆk (1962)
Isolator Number: 1962/70
Deposition: H. Ettl (7/6/65)
Relatives: SAG 22.72
Also Known As: Chlamydomonas hindakii (Ettl 1965; Starr & Zeikus 1987)
Notes: detectable hydrogen photoproduction (Brand et al. 1989)

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.
