UTEX B 1619
Anabaena verrucosa

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: 1619
Class: Cyanophyceae
Strain: Anabaena verrucosa
Media: BG-11(-N) Medium
Origin: Austin, Texas, USA
Description of Location: serpentine soils
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: L. Milliger
Isolator Number: 101
Deposition: T. Kantz (Fall 1967)
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: (Kantz & Bold 1969); 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.
