Suboptimal light and chemical distribution (CO2, O2) in photobioreactors hinder phototrophic microalgal productivity and prevent economically scalable production of biofuels and bioproducts. Current strategies that improve illumination in reactors negatively impact chemical distribution, and vice versa. In this work, an...

In the present study, seven axenic fresh water microchlorophytes were isolated and identified as Tetradesmus dimorphus (NEIST BT-1), Chlorella sorokiniana (NEIST BT-2), Desmodesmus sp. (NEIST BT-10), Selenastrum sp. (NEIST BT-A6), Tetradesmus obliquus (NEIST BT-A1), Tetradesmus sp. (NEIST BT-A10), and Asterarcys...

Salt overloading during agricultural processes is causing a decrease in crop productivity due to saline sensitivity. Salt tolerant cyanobacteria share many cellular characteristics with higher plants and therefore make ideal model systems for studying salinity stress. Here, the response of...

We identified a spontaneously generated mutant from Synechocystis sp. PCC6803 wild-type cells grown in BG-11 agar plates containing 5 mM Glu and 10 microM DCMU. This mutant carries an R7L mutation on the alpha-subunit of cyt b559 in photosystem II...

A consensus is lacking whether monochromatic rather than broad-spectrum illumination is more efficient for photosynthetic microbe production platforms. Light wavelength and intensity were tuned to pigment composition for growth of the Cyanobacterium Synechocystis PCC 6803. Phycocyanin (PC)-targeting LEDs (620nm) provided...


Phycology Media in Plant Tissue Culture

Phycology media can be prepared from concentrated solutions or from powdered salt mixtures. The concentrated solutions are complete, including vitamins, and should be stored frozen.

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
