Flow cytometry was used to monitor the lipid content, viability and intrinsic light scatter properties of Rhodotorula glutinis CCMI 145 cells growing on batch cultures using xylose and glucose as carbon sources. The highest lipid content was observed for cells grown on glucose, at the end of the exponential phase (17.8% w/w). The proportion of cells stained with PI attaining 77% at the end of the glucose growth. Cells growing on xylose produced a maximum lipid content of 10.6% (w/w), at the stationary phase. An increase in the proportion of cells stained with PI was observed, reaching 29% at the end of xylose growth. Changes in the side and forward light scatter detected during the yeast batch cultures supported that R. glutinis cells grown on glucose experienced harsher conditions, resulting in a high level of cytoplasmic membrane damage, which did not occur when R. glutinis cells grew on xylose.
