Each vial is produced by the painstaking expression of billions of rare, ocean-vent dwelling microorganisms.

—In-Game Description
Nitain Extract is a special resource that can be obtained as a reward from Alerts, or, as of Update 18.5, Reactor Sabotage. Alerts rewarding Nitain Extract are guaranteed to occur at least 4 times in every 24 hour period. It has a small chance to drop from a cache when all three are found — Orokin or Reactor Sabotage and Lua or Kuva Fortress Exterminate.

  • Associated files in the game and the Warframe Nexus app refer to Nitain Extract as Alertium, which has become synonymous with the resource.
  • The description of harvesting Nitain is based from the method of recycling greenhouse compounds from germinated colonies underwater as another source of fuel, specifically Methane.
