Ultra-microplankton Detection

Ultra-microplankton Detection

Ultra-micro plankton are microscopic organisms that play a vital role in marine ecosystems as the primary producers of organic matter. These organisms form the base of the marine food chain and serve as indicators of ecosystem health. Marine ultramicro photosynthetic prokaryotes mainly include single-celled cyanobacteria, prochlorococci, purple, and green bacteria. The photosynthetic mechanism of cyanobacteria and eukaryotes is very similar, their only chlorophyll is chlorophyll a, phycobiliprotein is the main pigment to capture light energy. Understanding their abundance, diversity, and distribution is essential for assessing the overall ecological balance and potential disruptions caused by environmental factors.

At CD BioSciences, Freshwater ultra-microplankton is identified and counted to the highest taxonomic and ecological expertise standards by our team of dedicated aquatic taxonomists, maximizing data and reliability. We support small and large projects, providing ongoing monitoring or one-off analysis, combining high-quality results with fast turnaround times.
