For fermentation with O2-enriched air, the BioLector system is equipped with a special O2 up-regulation module. It consists of an additional gas connection for oxygen on the back side of the BioLector, as well as an oxygen sensor inside the cultivation chamber.
The sensor continuously measures the oxygen level inside the chamber and automatically regulates the flow of oxygen into the chamber. In this way, an oxygen level between 21% and 35% can be generated in the chamber.
Independent of the additional module all standard features of the microbioreactor remain unchanged.
E-O2-100 for the O2 up-regulation module
Other Optional Modules
The combination of multiple modules is possible.
/// Gas Modules
- O2 down regulating module for the down regulation of oxygen down to 2 %
- CO2 up regulating module for fermentation with a CO2 controlled gas atmosphere
- 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.
