NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory), Department of Energy U.S.A, is running a research project of developing a comprehensive high-throughput technique for assessing lipid production in micro-algae.

NREL recently performed a lipid analysis of  three Seambiotic's microalgae strains. The lipid contents on ash free dry weight (AFDW) are:

Nannochloropsis sp. 37%

Tetraselmis sp. 23%

Nannochloris sp. 16%

The fatty acid composition of the three microalgae indicates very high level of EPA in Nannochloropsis - 39% of total fatty acids.
