Abstract

Astaxanthin, produced from Haematococcus pluvialis (H. pluvialis), is a highly effective antioxidation material with broad applications in pharmacology and cosmetics. The production of astathanxin can be induced when the cells go through unfavorable growth conditions. We have developed a microfluidic microalgae culture chip that is capable of applying various conditions of electrical stimulations on H. pluvialis for enhanced production of high value biomass (e.g., astaxanthin).
