  • In the present study, the effects of various inorganic nitrogen sources, light intensities, aeration rates and especially vitamins were investigated in vegetative Haematococcus pluvialis Flotow cultures. The best growth among the nitrogen sources was achieved in NaNO3 (1.0 g/L) and KNO3 (0.5 g/L) with cell densities of 25.3 and 26.3x10 4 cells/ml respectively. In vitamin trials, the highest cell numbers were found in 0.1 (0.3 µM), 1.0 (4 µM) and 0.1 mg/L (0.75 µM) concentrations for thiamin… CONTINUE READING
