The green alga Haematococcus pluvialis is the current best source of natural astaxanthin, a high-value carotenoid. Traditionally, the production process of astaxanthin by this algae is achieved by a two-stage system: during the first stage, vegetative “green” cells are produced and then converted, in the second stage, into cysts that accumulate astaxanthin. In this work, a medium screening strategy based on the mixing of a three-component hydroponic fertilizer was applied to identify a new… CONTINUE READING
