- ... Microcystis blooms could cause severe problems for drinking water supplies with their associated microcystins (MCs). As the majority of MCs are retained inside the cells, the effective removal of the intact Microcystis cells to avoid the release of additional MCs plays an important role in drinking water treatment. This study evaluated the effect of ferric chloride (FeCl ₃) coagulation and the flo ...

- ... A pronounced dominance of toxic cyanobacteria has been found in eutrophic water bodies, with Microcystis being a common species. Although toxic cyanobacteria are commonly described worldwide, few recent papers on the sensitive and effective quantification of cyanobacteria have been published. In this paper, a multi-technique approach was applied by the use of cell density counting, cell viability ...
