CCMP463 was cryopreserved on Dec 2 1999 using 10% DMSO as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 21 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 ordered algae CCMP463 from your laboratories in 2014. The culture was growing well until recently. Sometimes the algae look one day fine, but they aggregate and settle down overnight. We grow our algae in artificial seawater with F1/2 medium under 14/10 day night conditions. We do airbubble in the culturing flasks (we use 1L or 2L bottles).   Do you have any tip what can prevent aggregation of the algae?

A:       I am afraid that we grow all our cultures in filtered natural seawater with a 13/11 light/dark cycle without aeration.
