Dr. Krista Hennig from Lassell College recently used Algae Research and Supply's algae for her non-majors biology class. They investigated the factors that effect algae growth by varying:
They used spectrophotometers set to 750nM to quantify the growth of the algae.
The project worked so well- they sent us pictures!
Thank You Dr. Henning for having us be part of your students projects!
