Application Note: Simplified Methods for Algal Characterization Using Microcapillary Flow Cytometry
5 November 2017

This study presents a simplified method to characterize different strains of algae using either Muse® Cell Analyzer or Guava® easyCyte microcapillary flow cytometry systems. This simple ‘mix and read’ assay quickly measures the count, viability and overall lipid content on a variety of algae strains, including Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, Chlorella vulgaris, Thalassiosira pseudonana, and Nannochloropsis oculata.
