Phycobilin pigments are a group of accessory pigments unique to cyanobacteria. PC and PE are two phycobilin pigments that also happen to have strong and unique fluorescent signals that can be detected by the CyanoWatch. Cyanobacterial species living in freshwater environments tend to contain predominantly phycocyanin, while marine species contain predominantly more phycoerythrin. Prior to ordering a CyanoWatch, the decision must be made as to which of the phycobilin pigments the instrument will be used to detect.
