UTEX LB 734
Cosmarium turpinii

*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: 734
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Cosmarium turpinii
Media: Soilwater: GR+ Medium
Origin: Bloomington, Indiana, USA
Description of Location: Blair's Pond
Type Culture: No
Collection:
Isolation: R.C. Starr
Isolator Number: 4 Cosmarium botrytis var. subtumidum
Deposition: CCAP (1952-5)
Relatives: CCAP 612/14B; SAG B 125.80
Also Known As: Cosmarium botrytis var. subtumidum
Notes: heterothallic, carries zygotic lethal, crosses with UTEX 733 (Starr 1954b, 1955a, 1958a, 1959)

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.
