Table 3 Total lipid content and biomass/lipid productivities of N. gaditana with/without shifting fluorescent dye

From: Wavelength shift strategy to enhance lipid productivity of Nannochloropsis gaditana

Experiment Control Shift
Biomass (g L−1) 1.708 ± 0.062 1.517 ± 0.332
Lipid content (%, g g biomass−1) 41.675 ± 3.638 49.644 ± 0.130*
Biomass productivity (g L−1 day−1) 0.259 ± 0.012 0.233 ± 0.060
Lipid productivity (g L−1 day−1) 0.108 ± 0.008 0.104 ± 0.030
  1. Control indicates dye maintained with R101, and shift indicates dye having shifted at day 5. All measurements were achieved at the 6th day of cultivation. The data points represent the average of samples and error bars indicate standard error (n = 3). Significant differences, as determined by Student’s t test, are indicated by asterisks (* P < 0.05)
