The applicability of a bacterial storage method (maintenance after absorption on cryopreservative-immersed ceramic beads) was tested for different fungal strains of biotechnological importance: Aspergillus, Mucor, Phaffia, Rhizomucor and Saccharomyces. Polyethylene glycol (100 μl of 30% or 45% solutions) added after the transfer of ceils into the vial increased the safety of storage.
