The extraction of the wide range of useful bioactive compounds produced by cyanobacteria is still a major bottleneck at industrial scale. In addition to the high costs, extraction efficiencies are also commonly low, with low cell disruption efficiencies playing a particularly significant role in intracellular compounds' release. To increase the chances of an extended use of the cyanobacteria toxin microcystin in several biotechnological fields, we aimed to optimize five different disruption techniques: bead milling, microwave, freeze-thaw cycles, high-speed homogenization, and sonication. For ...
