Arthrospira sp. PCC8005 is a cyanobacterium that was chosen by the European Space Agency as a food supplement for long haul space exploration mission in the frame of the MELiSSA project. However, it is not possible to preserve Arthrospira sp. in a inactive form for the time being. In the present work, various preservation conditions were tested including different mixture of cryoprotectants, natural induction of cryoprotectants inside the cell and nitrogen starvation.
