Harvesting the older Microalgae cells

Postby guru » Mon Feb 09, 2009 12:37 pm


Is there any special harvesting technique available to harvest only the older algal cells leaving the new cells to grow further?
Is it possible to seperate them by size or density?

You should look at OriginOil's patent-pending extraction process (live extraction TM)
it works by stimulating the algae cells through specific electrical modulations
