Use a spectrophotometer of 2 nm maximum bandwidth and stoppered matched glass or quartz cuvettes with path-length of 1cm. The light falls onto the light dependent resistors (LDRs) which decreases in resistance as more light falls upon it causing an increase in voltage as measured by the Arduino. It was recorded that Chlo-rophyll a showed the maximum absorbance at 662 nm, chlorophyll b at 646 nm and total caroten at 470 nm and the amount of these pigments was calculated according to the formulas of Lichtentaler and Wellburn (1985) (14). ���nַ7�&�̳w��V�oUvy?��n/ݚ��ۜv���Q;��R�痶_�#�C��;��Ӡ;,s�!c��6�YJC2�7����ɽՃ��ɽչc��m�]�]���N��L��K\��4UA�vb��C�6�]���a�#�q� ����da b`�^����l�rNFU� �(C\�f"]� B�� A path-length of up to 5cm can be used for dilute cultures.
