Measurements of nonfasting routine lipid samples have clear advantages that include (a) ease of sample collection timing for the patients and clinicians, (b) reduced burden on laboratories in the morning due to fasting status requirements, and (c) increase in compliance rates of lipid testing.
Microalgae cultivation is very simple, can grow autotrophically using inorganic carbon and solar energy to produce lipid. Their photosynthetic efficiency is higher and the final algal oil production per unit of surface may reach 200 times that of common plant oils [2-4].

Micro algae are sun light driven energy factories that are easy to cultivate and are efficient to convert C[O.sub.2], water to sugars and especially lipids to tryacyl glycerols (TAG's) in turn help to protect the environment from pollution (Afity et al., 2010).
