Subitec Photobioreactors

6 Liter Laboratory System

Subitec Photobioreactors for cultivation of microalgae

The Subitec FPA6L photobioreactor is designed for laboratory experiments with a volume of 6 liters, which includes all the necessary components, pipes, connections and instruments for cultivation under constant, reliable and reproducible conditions. The FPA6L is equipped with a dimmable Subitec LED lighting unit and a temperature control unit. The process air supply to the photobioreactor is set using a rotameter. The pH value is automatically regulated by the CO2 supply via a mass flow controller. All feed lines to the photobioreactor are equipped with sterile filters. The values for the automatic control of the temperature and the pH value are made on a touchscreen. Data is displayed and saved via the control unit.
