CCMP906 was cryopreserved on Jan 10 2008 using 6% DMSO as a cryoprotectant.

The time required to regrow this culture, prior shipping, is approximately 19 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 have ordered a marine green alage CCMP 715. Since we have been culturing this algae using F/2-Si meadium but the algae grows only at the bottom of the flask and it really attached too the bottle. So we are wondering if you could suggest a solution for this. Did you encounter the same problem? or it is just us.

A:       CCMP906, which I believe you meant, does adhere to the surface and bottom of the growth vessel in our collection as well once the culture starts to enter late log. This being said, the cells are in the column in our 18mL culture tubes. We have one  T. suecica we keep in the perpetual collection that is inoculated from the column every six weeks.  The only suggestion I have based on the information provided is creating a sub-culture in mid log phase.
