Hello everybody!
I wanted to know if somebody has tried preserving fungi in distilled water. Ive read an article (Rev Iberoam Micol 1998; 15: 166-168) about that and sounds really interesting.
The thing is I actually work with tissue culture, but we have a fungi collection that has to be mantained. But as this is not our priority, Id like to transfer them to new media and then not have to transfer them constantly.
The fungi have been for more than 6 months conserved at 4C in petri dishes of PDA, as the person who worked here before pay little attention to them.
Id be very grateful if someone could tell me if he/she has read the article, or other similar. Can they be conserved in test tubes with distilled water instead of in flasks? I could only measure the concentration (UFC/ml) at a guess, as I have not any instrument for that purpose...
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
