Increased lipid productivity of Acutodesmus dimorphus using optimized pulsed electric field

An alternative stress-inducing method, a low-energy pulsed electric field (LE-PEF), was used to improve the lipid productivity of microalgae cultures. A large shift in the Nile-Red-stained peaks toward a higher intensity in fluorescent-activated cell sorting, suggestive of an increased neutral lipid content, was observed when 10 kV LE-PEF pulses were… (More)
