Analysis of Phytoplankton Pigment

Analysis of Phytoplankton Pigment

Phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that play a crucial role in aquatic ecosystems. They are responsible for approximately half of the Earth's primary production, serving as the foundation of the marine food web. These photosynthetic organisms contain pigments that enable them to capture light energy for photosynthesis. By analyzing the pigment composition, we can gain valuable insights into the diversity, abundance, and physiological state of phytoplankton communities. Phytoplankton pigment analysis is a powerful tool for assessing water quality, studying ecosystem dynamics, and monitoring environmental changes. It provides a non-destructive and cost-effective method to identify different phytoplankton groups, measure primary productivity, and evaluate the impact of environmental factors such as nutrient availability, light availability, and pollution.

At CD BioSciences, we offer cutting-edge Phytoplankton Pigment Analysis services for the comprehensive evaluation of phytoplankton communities in aquatic ecosystems. With our expertise in analytical methods and advanced technologies, we deliver accurate and reliable results to assist researchers, environmental agencies, and industries involved in monitoring and assessing water quality.

Our Services

We use pigment analysis using high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), a fast, very sensitive and objective method for determining phytoplankton composition and estimating the biomass of different phytoplankton.

  • Pigment Identification
    Using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with spectroscopy, we accurately identify and quantify the individual pigments present in phytoplankton samples.
  • Pigment Concentration Analysis
    Our quantitative analysis provides detailed information on pigment concentrations in phytoplankton samples.
  • Chlorophyll-a Analysis
    Chlorophyll-a is the most abundant pigment found in phytoplankton and serves as a key indicator of primary productivity. We offer precise measurements of chlorophyll-a concentrations, allowing for the estimation of primary production rates and the overall health of aquatic ecosystems.
  • Phytoplankton Community Structure Analysis
    Through our analysis, we determine the phytoplankton community structure by quantifying the relative abundance of different phytoplankton taxa.
