PBR 100L
Research Algae Bioreactor

PBR 100L
Research Algae Bioreactor

• Ideal for researchers and universities looking to increase beyond flask cultures for novel algae processes and genetically modified strains

• Replaces carboy cultures in aquaculture hatcheries as inoculum for fiberglass batch systems or continuous bag systems

• Closed tank design with integral clean-in-place (CIP) system for biosecure algae cultures

• Closed loop pH and temperature control give scientists control over culture optimization

• Controlled nutrient dosing allow cell composition manipulation and omega 3 acummulation

How it works

Inoculate

Biosecure disconnects make inoculation from starter algae cultures (2L) simple & clean.

Clean

Between batches run the automated chemical CIP cycle to clean & sterilize the PBR. After a few hours the reactor is ready to be re-inoculated.

how it works cycle

Scale Up

The PBR automatically adds water & nutrients as it scales up the culture over 6-10 days.

Harvest

The PBR automatically harvests in continuous or semi-continuous mode for months at a time. At any point the entire batch can be harvested.

Description

• 100L vessel with stand, lights, reflectors, control system

• Specialty tank built from light stable acrylic doubles available light, promoting dense algae cultures

• Fan-less LEDs provide 2X the energy efficiency of traditional lighting

• Automated stirring and addition of up to three separate nutrients

• Designed for longevity in harsh environments

• Absolute 0.1µm nutrient & water and 0.2µm air & vent filtration

• Autoclavable tubings and fittings

• Simple 2 hour initial set up

• Grows freshwater or saltwater algae

• Easy to move with pallet jack or dragged
