This page will hopefully provide links to methods in cyanobacterial toxin research as a ready resource for those requiring such information. Given that my personal experience is limited to my specific field, I am hoping that those who have information to share will post it here for all to see.

I have a few links to start the ball rolling and a few questions to provoke those with answers to send them in. If you do have an answer to any of the questions below, or if you have questions you would like to get answers to, please e-mail me at botbml@luff.latrobe.edu.au

The page may take quite some time to develop and will be culled from my directory if nothing happens in a few months. So, I urge you to submit something to help keep it going!!!

  • Extraction and analysis of microcystins
      What solvent should I use when extracting?
        How can I purify a cyanobacterial toxin?

    1. How should I grow my cyanobacteria?

    2. How can I tell if my cyanobacterium is "toxic"?

    3. Does anyone know anything about toxins other than microcystins?

      While this page starts up... you might find what you're looking for at Cyanosite's protocols page.

      This archival page is no longer updated. The current equivalent page is here.
