Labfors LED Flat Panel Photobioreactor
August 9, 2012
esigned for the cultivation of algae, plant cells and cyanobacteria, the Labfors 5 Lux LED Flat Panel provides a very flexible system for culture volumes up to 1.8 L. A total of 260 high-power LEDs offer a reproducible, high quality light source with the possibility to simulate a daylight curve.
Warm white lighting is standard, with different colors available as an option. The maximum irradiation intensity of approx. 3000 µmol/m²s is comparable to Caribbean sunlight.
With a layer thickness of 2 cm, the flat panel airlift bioreactor offers uniform irradiation strength for the entire culture without shadowing effects.
Precise gas mix and gas flow control (e.g., CO2 and pCO2 control) are achieved with mass flow controllers. The touch screen controller provides accurate and reliable measurement, control and communication with supervisory software. Up to six flat panels and irradiation units can be independently controlled from a single touch screen.
The integrated OPC server makes the connection with external devices simple. A stirred tank vessel is also available for classical photosynthetic cultivation.
