UTEX LB 1745
Spirogyra liana

ATTENTION:

The deadline for 2018 shipment on orders for strains maintained in cryopreservation only (cryo only) was November 14, 2018. Orders placed after this deadline will not ship until Early February 2019. 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.

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: 1745
Class: Chlorophyceae
Strain: Spirogyra liana
Media: Bold 1NV Medium
Origin: Kanke,
Description of Location: dried mud
Type Culture: No
Collection: (1965)
Isolation: M.E. Goldstein
Isolator Number: 209
Deposition:
Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: homothallic, scalariform conjugation, anisogamous

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.
