Functional analysis of phytoplankton by flow cytometry: a study of the effect of copper on a marine diatom
A. Cid, C. Herrero and J. Abalde

Changes in cell volume, chlorophyll a fluorescence, cell viability, peroxidase activity, intracellular pH, and cytoplasmic and mitochondrial membrane potential of the marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum stressed by copper were analyzed by flow cytometry. Results demonstrate that flow cytometry is a very useful tool in microalgal functional studies.

Keywords: Flow cytometry, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, functional analysis.
