PSI presents various devices for controlled cultivation of plants, algae or cyanobacteria:
- Photobioreactors for controlled algae or cyanobacteria suspension growing and incorporated measuring of various experimental parameters (temperature, fluorescence, pH, O2, and many others)
- LED Light Sources of diverse dimension and LED color for controlled plant growing in labs, growth chambers, or greenhouses
Photobioreactors FMT 150/400 and FMT 150/1000 feature a unique combination of the cultivator and computer controlled monitoring device. FMT 150/400 and FMT 150/1000 differ in the capacity of their cultivation vessels - 400 ml and 1000 ml respectively. Both Photobioreactor models may be supplied with a number of useful accessories - sensors, stirrers, pumps, etc.
Multi-Cultivator MC 1000 serves for small scale cultivation of algae, bacteria or cyanobacteria. The instrument represents a perfect solution in applications requiring diverse experimental variants. In an ideal configuration, the high-throughput part of the experiments is performed in the MC 1000 and the results are finalized in our FMT 150.
FytoScope Chamber FS 130 is designed for well-defined growing and monitoring of higher plants. It is equipped with a LED-based light panel that provides high-intensity illumination, which is controllable in its power, spectral composition and temporal modulation.
FS 250 and FS 360 are growth chambers that are accessible from the top. Their lid is equipped with a LED-based light panel. Controllable parameters are temperature and illumination.
Step-in Fytoscope FS 3400 enables the researcher to maintain controlled growing conditions of temperature and humidity in a 24 h period with independent selection of photoperiods. A full range of "day/night" cycles with "dawn/dusk" and "cloudy sky" effects can be programmed. In addition, basic fluorescence parameters are monitored.
AlgaeTron AG 130 is a floor standing incubated shaker that provides well-defined conditions for growing algae and cyanobacteria. It comes with a shaker and is equipped with a large, easy-to-read display screen. Intuitive programming allows multiple parameter changes to timing, light intensity, light characteristics, temperature, and shaking power.
AlgaeTron AG 230 is a floor standing incubated shaker with minimum footprint size - yet with three independently illuminated spaces for comfortable growing of algae and cyanobacteria in controlled conditions. Programmable parameters are: timing, light intensity, light characteristics, temperature, and shaking power.
LED Light Source SL 3500 serves for generation of strong, controllable irradiance. It is manufactured in three basic versions that differ in the panel size: 13 x 13 cm, 20 x 20 cm, or 30 x 20 cm. Offered are single-color, bi-color or tri-color panel versions. The LED Light Source comes with an adjustable stand.
