The freshwater microalga Haematococcus pluvialis is one of the best microbial sources of the carotenoid astaxanthin, but this microalga shows low growth rates and low final cell densities when cultured with traditional media. A single-variable optimization strategy was applied to 18 components of the culture media in order to maximize the productivity of vegetative cells of H. pluvialis in semicontinuous culture. The steady-state cell density obtained with the optimized culture medium at a… CONTINUE READING
