UTEX B SP8
Navicula ramosissima

*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.

To ensure only healthy cultures are sent out, UTEX may temporarily remove the ability to purchase a strain. Once the strain is available again, an email will be sent to customers who have requested a notification.


Algae Detail

UTEX Number: SP8
Class: Bacillariophyceae
Strain: Navicula ramosissima

Origin: Great Salt Plains, Oklahoma, USA
Description of Location: pool (sediment) 36_ 44.771, 98_ 15.568
Type Culture: No
Collection: W.J. Henley, A.E. Kirkwood (7/19/02)
Isolation: A.E. Kirkwood
Isolator Number:
Deposition: W.J. Henley (6/05)
Relatives: SPMO 138-1; CCMP 2602
Also Known As:
Notes: recovered from CCMP 4/5/06

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.
