Abstract

Microalgae have great potential to production of high-value products, but commercial use of microalgae has been limited due to their low photosynthetic productivity. To overcome this limitation, it is necessary to develop an efficient platform for rapid evaluation of photoautotrophic growth of microalgal strains. Here we could monitor the growth kinetics of microalgal strains in an immobilized microdroplet by integrating micropillar arrays and confirmed a decrease of pH using colorimetric and fluorescence-based assays. The photoautotrophic growth kinetics of Chlorella vulgaris were investigated under different CO2 concentrations and light intensities. Finally, we compared growth performance of four microalgal strains.
