UTEX B EE59
Hemichloris cf. antarctica

*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: EE59
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Hemichloris cf. antarctica
Media: Modified Bold 3N Medium
Origin: Mt. Dido,
Description of Location: sandstone with cryptoendolithic growth
Type Culture: No
Collection: E.I. Friedmann (1978)
Isolation: R.O. Friedmann
Isolator Number:
Deposition: E.I. Friedmann
Relatives: CCMEE 190 A789-45
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.
