Method:

Please see below details of how we create this Sterile Algae Culture Media:

  • Firstly, we make up this media from seawater by filtering it down to 0.35um, which removes solids
  • Secondly, we pass the media through UV sterilisation and ozone sterilisation, then we autoclave it at 121°C
  • Thirdly, after cooling, we add sterile  F/2+ nutrient concentrate
  • Finally, We add filtered sodium metasilicate (silica) solution along with the F/2+

 

Note:

We make freshwater media by using R.O. water, autoclaved at 121°C and sterile 3 part MLA nutrient concentrate.

Furthermore, our algae culturing media is made up weekly in small batches to ensure the freshness of the product.
