Precise Phototrophic Cultivation of Algae and Cyanobacteria
About...

New PBR control software is intended for the product line comprising Multi-Cultivators, small- and large-scale Photobioreactors. The software provides intuitive and dynamic interface for real-time visualization of recorded data and also online remote access via internet. Number of advanced custom cultivation protocols can easily be set through the user-friendly adjustment of individual parameters.

Key Features

  • Full control (setting and editing) of experimental conditions
  • Real time visualization and filtering of experimental parameters and measured data (OD680, OD720, chlorophyll fluorescence, cultivation parameters, etc.)
  • Real-time regression analysis of growth rates


  • Storage of data in a database
  • Multiple data handling functions (filtering, searching, multiple export)
  • Online changes to protocols recorded in protocol history

PBR Control Software


New PBR Control Software is our universal solution developed for wide range of PSI cultivation devices comprising Multi-Cultivators and small- and large-scale Photobioreactors. The software provides intuitive and dynamic interface for real-time visualization of recorded data and alsoonline remote access via internet. Number of advanced custom cultivation protocols can be easily set through the user-friendly adjustment of individual parameters. Also java scripting for specific modification of the controlled parameters is available. In addition, storing data into database is implemented, including intelligent searching in the database and user-friendly multiple experiment export function into MS Excel or OpenOffice. Advanced data analysis functions are includedsuch as regression analysis and dynamic real-time calculation of growth rates for defined periods.


The PBR control software is available in two versions: Basic and Advanced. The major difference is that the advanced version comprises additional features and is optimized for simultaneous control of different and multiple cultivation devices such as Multi-Cultivators as well as Photobioreactors from one PC. Software controlled communication with additional devices such as Gas Mixing System GMS 150, Turbidostatic module and additional pumps are also supported.



LIST OF SOFTWARE-CONTROLLED PARAMETERS


  • Full control of light regime for each cultivation color independently
  • Temperature
  • OD measurement at 680 and 720 nm
  • Chlorophyll fluorescence parameters (F0, Fm QY)
  • pH, O2 and CO2
  • Sparging gas
  • Magnetic stirrer
  • Turbidostatic, chemostat and pH-stat cultivation
  • Medium consumption for turbidostatic mode
  • Additional pumps
