Polar isolates of four chlorococcal microalgae originating from the Arctic and Antarctica withstand cryopreservation using encapsulation/dehydration. Viability assessments, which initially used chloroplhyll fluorescence (Kautsky) induction kinetics, revealed that all strains suffered photosynthetic impairment during early post-cryopreservation recovery. This cryoinjury was reversible, as indicated by cell regrowth in three of the four strains. Lack of growth in the fourth isolate was due to contaminating bacteria rather than cryogenic factors.

  • CryoLetters is a bimonthly international journal for low temperature sciences, including cryobiology, cryopreservation or vitrification of cells and tissues, chemical and physical aspects of freezing and drying, and studies involving ecology of cold environments, and cold adaptation

    The journal publishes original research reports, authoritative reviews, technical developments and commissioned book reviews of studies of the effects produced by low temperatures on a wide variety of scientific and technical processes, or those involving low temperature techniques in the investigation of physical, chemical, biological and ecological problems.
