The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 25 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: I was wondering whether you could share information about CCMP1320 their growth rates (in L1 medium). We are using it for a time-sensitive project and I would like to have a better understanding of which species had high growth rates.
A: CCMP333 is a fairly slow grower (3wks at 14C) so maybe 6-8 weeks to ship 1L. CCMP1336 and 1320 are aqua culture so could ship 1L in 2-3 weeks. The remainder are cryo preserved and will take 2-4 months to ship 1L.
