AlgaeTron 130
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

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.

Compact dimensions and small footprint of the AlgaeTron AG 130 saves precious laboratory space and is perfect for small-scale applications. It has one illuminated space with an additional bottom shelve.

Key Features

  • Independently programmable LED-based illumination:
  • - white + far-red LED light
    - light modulation according to a predefined function (continuous, pulse, sine, triangle);
    - precise intensity control in the range of 1 % to 100 %;
    - timing steps from seconds to hours and days;
    - user-programmed function (optional) or daylight simulation (optional);
    - minimum undesirable heating
  • Light intensity: up to 500 µmol.m-2.s-1 in warm white; up to 1,000 µmol.m-2.s-1 in cool white


  • Temperature control: programmable controller ramps temperature up or down in the range of +15 to 50 oC (with maximum illumination)white
  • Intuitive programming: allows parameter changes to temperature, photosynthetic light, shaking speed, and, optionally, to humidity
  • Possibility to comfortably edit light protocols from a PC via the Device Control Center application
  • Additional, height-adjustable shelving: adds storage for incubating plates and other samples

AlgaeTron AG 130



AlgaeTron AG 130
is a floor standing incubated shaker that provides well-defined culture conditions for growing algae and cyanobacteria in Petri dishes or Erlenmeyer flasks. It is equipped with a large, easy-to-read display screen clearly showing operating parameters and actual values. Intuitive programming allows multiple parameter changes to timing, light intensity, light characteristics, temperature, and shaking power.

Accessories


Temperature Upgrade

Wider range of cultivation temperatures. Temperature control range: +10 to +55 ºC (with maximum illumination).

Shaker SHK-2013

Bench-scale orbital shaker with loading capacity of 5 kg. Rotation speed: 30-500 RPM. Dimension (D x W x H): 375 x 320 x 125 mm; weight: 8 kg. Non-skid rubber mat included - suitable for small lightweight containers or Petri dishes and low speed rotation. Tray with sticky matting or Erlenmeyer attachments are recommended for Erlenmeyer flasks shaking with high speed rotation.


Tray with Sticky Matting

Stainless tray with sticky matting for safe fastening of various types and sizes of culture vessels. The tray is easily installed onto the shaker SHK-2013 top part.
