BIOF-P SERIES Photo Bioreactor Systems Description

BIOF-P series fermentation system is a set of laboratory glass fermentation equipment with powerful functions, which can meet various purposes of fermentation, such as batch, batch feeding, and even animal cell culture. The colour touch screen is used to display all measured values and control parameters, which greatly facilitates the user’s operation. Four peristaltic pumps are installed on the front of the control box to add acid, alkali, defoamer and culture medium to the fermenter. Various parameters in fermentation such as pH, DO, temperature and speed can be monitored by the controller, and all data and control parameters can be transmitted to the controller or computer. The structure is compact, and various components can be integrated into the fermentation system. It adopts the direct coupling mechanical stirring method driven by the upper part or the magnetic indirect coupling mechanical stirring method driven by the lower part, which has a simple structure and stable operation.

BIOF-P SERIES Photo Bioreactor application

This system is suitable for the cell and tissue culture of marine organisms, especially algae and macroalgae. It is one of the hotspots in the current research field. Some of the secondary metabolites such as halogenated terpenes are widely studied secondary metabolites, LABGENI & LABFREEZ He has nearly two decades of research experience in the field of photo culture and reaction, and the photobioreactor is the crystallization of these research experiences.

The light bioreactor specially designed for light cultivation of this fermentation system is suitable for the cultivation of algae cells and tissues. The light intensity can be adjusted arbitrarily according to the percentage, and it can simulate various light modes, such as day and night alternation.
