Kadar Vitamin C Dalam Tubuh Daphnia Sp. Yang Diperkaya Dengan Vitamin C Pada Lama Waktu Pengkayaan Yang Berbeda Vitamin C Content In Daphnia Sp. Enriched With L-Ascorbic Acid Ethyl
Daphnia with a density of 10,000 ind./l medium were enriched with either 0.1, 0.5 or 1 g l-ascorbic acid ethyl cellulose (VC) per l culture medium. In this triplicate experiment, Daphnia were enriched with VC in a 12 litre aquaria for 0, 3, 6 or 9 h. Results showed that the maximum VC content in Daphnia enriched with 0.1, 0.5 and 1 g VC/l medium was 347, 471 and 482 g VC/g Daphnia (dry basis), respectively. This VC content was obtained after 5 h, 5 h 12 min and 5 h 18 min of enrichment period. During 9 h enrichment period, the survival rate of Daphnia enriched with 0.1, 0.5 and 1 g VC/l medium was decrease linearly from 100% to 55.6%, 50.1% and 47.9%, respectively.
