UTEX B EE50
Chlorococcum sp.

Important Order Deadlines:

Orders for strains that are maintained only in cryopreservation that were placed before October 26th, 2018, will ship on November 26th, 2018. Please view more information here.

*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: EE50
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Chlorococcum sp.
Media: Volvox Medium
Origin: Bull Pass,
Description of Location: rock
Type Culture: No
Collection: E.I. Friedmann (1978)
Isolation: R.O. Friedmann
Isolator Number:
Deposition: E.I. Friedmann
Relatives: CCMEE 176 A789-30b
Also Known As:
Notes: This strain is maintained in cryopreservation only.

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.
