CCMP1332 was cryopreserved on Oct 5 2006 using 10% MeOH as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 32 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 are having some health issues with our algae and are looking to get some new stocks. We use our algae to feed broodstock and oyster spat. We want to order a mass culture of axenic Chaetoceros neogracile, a mass culture of axenic Isochrysis galbana, and an axenic starter culture of Nannochloropsis oculata. Before I place the order though I wanted to double check that the axenic culture CCMP1323 is what is commonly referred to as Ciso. I did not see any specific caribbean strains listed and was wondering if CCMP1323 is the same or similar.  Additionally, I am still fairly new to algal culture and I was wondering if you knew someone or had a resource you could direct me to, that helps diagnose algal health issues.

A:       For CISO you want CCMP463.  As for health problems just shoot me an email and I will brainstorm with the other curators to try to diagnose the issue
