UTEX B 1588
Scenedesmus 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: 1588
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Scenedesmus sp.
Media: Proteose Medium
Origin: Storrs, Connecticut, USA
Description of Location: pond
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: F. Trainor
Isolator Number: N46
Deposition:
Relatives:
Also Known As: S. armatus (Hegewald 1989), Desmodesmus armatus (Hegewald 2000)
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.
