For cultivations under CO2-controlled conditions the BioLector system is equipped with a special CO2 up-regulation module. This module consists of an additional gas connection for CO2 on the back side of the BioLector and a CO2 sensor inside the cultivation chamber.
The sensor continuously measures the CO2 level inside the chamber and automatically regulates the flow of CO2 into the chamber. In this way, a CO2 level between 0 % and 10 % can be generated in the chamber. Independent of the additional module, all of the microbioreactor's standard features remain unchanged.

Other Optional Modules
The combination of multiple modules is possible.
/// Gas Modules
- O2 up regulating module for the up-regulation of oxygen up to 35 %
- O2 down regulating module for the down-regulation of oxygen down to 2 %
- Anaerobic cultivation module for cultivation under anaerobic conditions
/// Fluorescence Modules
- LED / filter module for fluorescence measurements for wavelengths between 365 nm - 800 nm
Up to three additional fluorescence modules can be added to the standard filters for biomass, pH, and DO. In total, six different modules fit into the system.
