Abstract
A technique that allows for the preservation of spectral fluorescence properties of phytoplankton cells is presented. Laboratory cultures and field samples were concentrated and embedded within gelatin to preserve the spectral fluorescence properties of phytoplankton cells. Fluorescence excitation spectra (Ex: 400 - 650 nm, Em: 683 nm) obtained from samples prepared according to this method were compared to the spectra obtained from traditional cell suspensions, and by microphotometry. The spectra produced by samples prepared following this method remain spectrally intact if stored at -70 degree(s)C, and allowed to return to room temperature prior to measurement.
