Elara Laboratory Bench-Top Photo Bioreactor

For photosynthesis process research of phototrophic organisms such as Micro Algae, Plant Cells, Cyanobacteria, Moss. Standard 4L vessel or Flat Panel (flate plate) 1.6L

The Elara Photo Bioreactor is designed for the cultivation of phototrophic organisms including Plant Cell, Bacteria, Cyanobacteria, Moss and Micro Algae.

It includes High Power LED lighting. The light intensity is dimmable from 0 to 100% to up to 3000µmol(photon)/m2 (approx. 180,000 lux). Control of illumination via cell concentration and simulation of daylight curve and weather conditions.

SBC-14 Smart Controller for pilot and industrial plant is supplied as standard and allows scale-up of processes. The SBC-14 system complies with 21 CFR Part 11 FDA regulation.
