I've just ordered cultures of Paramecium primaurelia and Didinium nasutum for
our microbial ecology teaching lab. I would like to know how to store these
paramecia for the long term by other than freeze-drying them. Can they be
frozen like bacterial cultures are (i.e. using ProVial beads)? Any
information would be greatly appreciated.
I know how to grow them - I just need to know how to store them for long
periods of time (years).
