The lab scale photobioreactor offers an optimized design for delivering light to the culture to maximize growth and product accumulation rates. The UTEX Photobioreactors have been refreshed with an upgraded design. We've swapped some of the plastic components of the original photobioreactor with metal ones, making the updated unit longer lasting and reusable! The optional RGB-LED Lighting Platform is customizable (red, blue, and green LED lights) and testable for labs or classrooms wishing to optimize a light source for a particular species of interest. The gas exchange agitator further enhances growth and is likewise customizable and testable.
The UTEX Photobioreactor systems are equipped with a disposable gas exchange assembly and an additional port for monitoring (pH, DO%, sampling) to accelerate photosynthetic organismal growth. The systems can be used in direct sunlight or as plug and play modules within a spectral illumination platform delivering specific wavelengths of visible and non-visible light.
