C-Phycocyanin MSDS

Much like chlorophyll, phycocyanin harvests light energy for photosynthesis, but unlike chlorophyll, which occurs in
many organisms from microbes to plants, phycocyanin mostly is found in cyanobacteria (blue-green algae). Phycocyanin
is the blue fluorescent protein (excitation 600-620 nm, emission 640-650 nm) that gives these organisms their distinctive
color. Therefore, phycocyanin fluorescent measurements are used in environmental sampling to estimate the
abundance of cyanobacteria.
