Photobioreactor | Lab Scale

Capacity : 2L to 40L
Industry : Pharmaceutical & Biotech Industry, Research Institutes

Our BioFoton range provides optimum control over critical parameters like the color spectrum, intensity of light, temperature, circulation, pH, DO, etc. for better experimentation and research objectives for the production of photosynthetic microorganism production, nutraceuticals, proteins, biofuels and biomass. Fermex lab scale photo-bioreactors are designed and manufactured by professionally trained and skilled engineers under a strict code of “Good Manufacturing Practices”  and we follow the principles of bioprocess technology and the latest guidelines of ASME BPE-2016. Our BioFoton series is made up of supreme quality materials like Borosilicate glass and stainless steel grade 316L. Our lab scale BioFoton series is available from 2L to 40L range along with customized controls.
