Bioreactor for Algae and Cyanobacteria

Bioreactor for Algae and Cyanobacteria

Brand Tecnal

Autoclavable Air-Lift bioreactor with internal borosilicate glass draft tube, with 316L stainless steel perforated pipes crosshead diffuser

  • Autoclavable reaction vessel and aseptic sampling

  • Various parameter controls, including PAR radiation sensor and spectroradiometer

  • Operation flexibility, using air lift or bubble column stirring

  • LED photoperiodic lighting and user-customizable spectral band

  • Ideal for setting guidelines and initial studies with microalgae

  • Productivity and efficiency gain due to automatic control and asepsis during the process
