Title: Determination of Total Solids and Ash in Algal Biomass: Laboratory Analytical Procedure (LAP)

This procedure describes the methods used to determine the amount of moisture or total solids present in a freeze-dried algal biomass sample, as well as the ash content. A traditional convection oven drying procedure is covered for total solids content, and a dry oxidation method at 575 deg. C is covered for ash content.
