Method For the production of astaxanthin, the vegetative cells grown by the irradiance controlled fed-batch cultivation were sequentially induced in the CO2-fed flat type photobioreactor for 9 days by increasing the light intensity to 400 µmol photon/m^2/s, while keeping the other conditions fixed. Values extracted manually from figure.
Comments 6mg/l before induction, 190mg/l after 9 days.
