The ideal medium for growing a phytoplankton colony
- Culture medium for phytoplankton
- Based in the classic F / 2 formula
- A range of sizes to stock up on
Easyphyt is a culture medium developed by EasyReefs specifically for the cultivation of phytoplankton at small or medium scale. Its formula based on the classic F / 2 of Guillard is appropriate for cultivation of Tetraselmis, Nannochloropsis, Isochrysis and Rhodomonas, among others. For the cultivation of diatoms such as Phaeodactylum or Chaetoceros, the use of specific silicate-rich culture media is recommended.
How to use:
Prepare a solution with 1 part of Easyphyt and 4 parts of water.
In cultures with periodic start-up (batch culture), use 5 ml of the solution per liter of culture.
In semi-continuous cultures, use 1 ml per liter of water each time a partial harvest is made.
Store in a cool place, preferably refrigerated.
