Ognistaya A. V., Markina Zh. V. Carbohydrates as an organic substrate for microalgae Tisochrysis lutea (Haptophyta) under conditions of laboratory culture. Marine Biological Journal, 2021, vol. 6, no. 4, pp. 105-107. https://doi.org/10.21072/mbj.2021.06.4.09



The possibility was studied of using carbohydrates in order to optimize the cultivation process of microalgae Tisochrysis lutea (Haptophyta). The effect of D-galactose, glucose, and sucrose at concentrations of 100 and 200 mg·L−1 on the dynamics of T. lutea abundance was analyzed. As found, adding of all the studied carbohydrates stimulated microalgae growth, with sucrose at a concentration of 200 mg·L−1 having the most pronounced effect.
