Analysis of Microcystis

From single cells to colonies

The wide particle size range measured in the CytoSense enabled researchers to analyze Microcystis single cells and colonies present in Lake Taihu. Since September 2016 a CytoSense is applied to continuously monitor dynamics of this harmful cyanobacterium. It is a part of a large-scale program set up to protect water quality in Lake Taihu, drinking water source to over 30 million people. The CytoSense project is realized by the Taihu Basin Authority in partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.
