Notes: A strain of microalgae, Micractinium pusillum strain Y-002, was grown in four different complete media as well as medium lacking one nutrient (nitrogen, iron, calcium, sulfur, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium or calcium). To determine the effect of the growth medium on lipid content of the microalgae, the cells were stained with a final concentration 0.1μg/ml of Nile Red for 10 minutes. The GloMax®-Multi Detection System measured fluorescence using 470nm excitation and 570nm emission wavelengths. (4233)
