Abstract: The applicability of 3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay to an industrially valuable filamentous cyanobacterium Arthrospira platensis was examined. When it was applied to A. platensis NIES-39, as few as 10 viable trichomes were quantitatively detected. However, depending on the experimental conditions, it also generated artifactual viability signals. The results should help clarify the scope and limits of the MTT assay in viability analysis.
