Краткое описание

Variability of elemental concentrations in cells of Ceratium hirundinella and Anabaena sp. measured by SEM XRMA were studied in relation to the conditions of the analyses. A point mode of analyses proved to be very variable due to the high heterogeneity of bioobjects, while results obtained by a medium-size reduced raster gave the best estimate of the concentrations in question. Larger sizes of reduced raster led to an underestimation of the measured intracellular concentrations probably due to a relatively high share of a cell wall and picking up void space, while results gained with smaller sizes of a reduced raster were subject to a high variability characteristic of a point mode analysis. Application of a medium-sized reduced raster could be recommended for measurements of intracellular elemental concentrations of freshwater phytoplankton species.
