CCMP1329 was cryopreserved on Jul 17 2009 using 12% DMSO as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 28 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 intend to cultivate CCMP1329 in our laboratory. We are concerned with respect to potential formation of the toxin tetrodotoxin of safe decontamination of the cultivation equipment (e.g. glass vessels or pipets) as well as the culture medium itself. I was wondering wether you can supply any guidelines for the cultivation of this algae? 

A:       No one has tested the toxin production in this strain, we depend on the depositor to supply this information.  I can't speak to the guidelines for toxic strain is your country.  Here at NCMA we use autoclaved Pasteur pipettes and pipetman in a Laminar Flow hoods for all transfers.                


Q:       I am writing you with respect to cultivation of CCMP1329 which we intend to also cultivate in our laboratory. We are, however, converned with respect to potential formation of the toxin tetrodotoxin of safe decontamination of the cultivation equipment (e.g. glass vessels or pipets) as well as the culture medium itself. Since you are apparently maintaining a culture, I was wondering wether you can supply any guidelines for the cultivation of this algae?
