Investigation of phytochemical constituents in Spirulina fusiformis for antibacterial activity

Thamilmaraiselvi B, Steffi P F.

Abstract
Background: Spirulina fusiformis provides a wide range of health benefits, so a major percentage of the population in developing countries depends on S. fusiformis due to its nutritional value.

Aim and Objective: To examine the phytochemical constituents in Spirulina fusiformis for antibacterial activity.

Materials and Methods: This study was a laboratory observational, phytochemical analysis, and antibacterial assay of S. fusiformis was carried out.

Results: Ethanol and chloroform extract showed a maximum inhibitory effect against all species chosen for this study.

Conclusion: S. fusiformis sample found to contain certain phytochemicals in higher ratio and a wider range of protein and amino acids. It also possesses good antibacterial activity against various organisms.

Key words: Anti-bacterial Assay; Cyanobacteria; Phytochemical Analysis; Spirulina fusifomis
