CCMP1314 was cryopreserved on Aug 28 2009 using 15% DMSO as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 24 days. If interested, please contact the CCMP for the cryopreservation methods (freezing and/or thawing protocols).

Note that aquaculture strains are always maintained as actively growing cultures, even if also cryogenically stored. Therefore, aquaculture strains (see aquaculture express ordering on the CCMP home page) can be shipped immediately upon request.

Q:       We would like to order CCMP1314, only if it is axenic, as wewould like to perform some mixotrophic experiments.  In your website, it is described as axenic, can you confirm this information ?

A:       Any strain listed as axenic is tested annually to assure that it remains axenic. The last time that this strain was tested was in March. To test if a strain is axenic we put some into media that enriched with organics that feed bacteria. I have included links to the recipe. If there is no growth in either medium after 3 weeks the organism is considered axenic. I am not sure what you mean by how long does it last. Do you mean the strain or the axenicity? We do not normally do additional testing test prior to shipment.
