Precise Phototrophic Cultivation of Algae and Cyanobacteria
About...

The Photobioreactor Control Softwareis a universal solution developed for a wide range of PSI cultivation devices comprising Multi-Cultivators, small- and large-scale Photobioreactors and their accessories. The software provides intuitive and dynamic interface for real-time visualization of recorded data including online remote access. Number of advanced custom cultivation protocols can be easily set through the user-friendly adjustment of the individual cultivation parameters.

Key Features

  • Full control (setting and editing) of the experimental conditions
  • Real-time visualization of the experimental parameters and measured data (OD 680, OD 720, chlorophyll fluorescence, cultivation parameters, etc.)


  • Real-time regression analysis of the data
  • Storage of data in a database
  • Multiple data handling functions (filtering, searching, export)
  • Remote access to the experiment

PBR Control Software


The Photobioreactor Control Software is a universal solution developed for a wide range of PSI cultivation devices comprising
Multi-Cultivators, small and large-scale Photobioreactors and their accessories. The software provides intuitive and dynamic interface for real-time visualization of recorded data including online remote access. Number of advanced custom cultivation protocols can be easily set through the user-friendly adjustment of the individual cultivation parameters.

Besides the standard control of the experimental conditions through a graphical interface also java scripting (optional) for user-specific modifications of the controlled parameters is available. This allows to set unlimited range of experimental conditions based on particular user requirements.

Real time data visualization and data processing provide early feedback for proper experiment management. Storing data into database including intelligent searching is implemented. A multiple experiment export function into MS Excel or OpenOffice enables exhaustive exploitation of the gained results.


Controlled and measured parameters



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




Versions


The PBR control software is available in two versions: Basic and Advanced. 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 communications with additional devices such as Turbidostatic module, Gas Mixing System GMS 150 and additional pumps are also supported.
