Dear collegues,
our cultures of Dunaliella salina are contaminated by a dinoflagellate 
which was identified as Oxyrrhis. This organism seems to be extremely 
resistent to high salt conditions as well as to destilled water, heating 
and drying. Since the dinoflagellate apparently feeds on Dunaliella, and 
thus destroys our cultures very quickly, we are interested in some 
information about this organism (life cycle etc.). Does anyone has an 
idea how to clean the cultures?
thank you in advance
best regards
Maria Mulisch
