UTEX LB 2958
Anthophysa vegetans

*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.

UTEX Number: 2958
Class: Chrysophyceae
Strain: Anthophysa vegetans
Media: Modified Desmidiacean Medium
Origin: Geneva,
Description of Location: Nant dêAvril sewage treatment plant 46ç13ê00"N, 006ç05ê00"E
Type Culture: No
Collection: Robert Peck (June 2003)
Isolation: Robert Peck (June 2003)

Relatives:
Also Known As:
Notes: Preisig et al. (1991)

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.
