Photobioreactors

             We maintain eight 10L photobioreactors (IKA Algaemaster 10 control) that cumulatively can grow up to 80L of culture with and increased yield of two orders of magnitude for the same volume grown in conventional static cultures.                 

           These photobioreactors were designed trougth a collaboration between ARC and IKA® Works Inc. to be customized to the specific needs of the slow growing, sensitive microalgae such as most toxic dinoflagellate species. We are presently testing a 100L prototype.
