Comprehensive algae information:
Countstar® BioMarine can automatically calculate the concentration, major axis length and minor axis length of algae and generate the algae growth curve, reflecting the growth of the algae.
Wide range compatibility:
Countstar® BioMarine is applicable to different shapes (i.e., spherical, elliptic, tubular, filamentous and cateniform) of unicellular and multi-cellular algae with axis length ranging from 2 µm to 180µm.
Countstar® BioMarine can screen target algae from complex samples for classification and counting by sizes or shapes.
To know the biomass of algae is basic for algae research. The traditional methods for analyzing biomass are Determination of the content of chlorophyll A – Accurate but complicated and time-consuming procedure. Spectrophotography – Need to use supersonic to destroy algae, not stable result and time-consuming.
Accurate and Excellent Reproducibility
Compared with the traditional hemocytometer, the result acquired by Countstar BioMarine shows a better linearity and a wider concentration range, and is thus more accurate.
Standard deviation shows Countstar BioMarine can accurately count selenastrum bibraianum cells; the error bar shows the average standard deviation.
