AlgaeTron 160/300
Research under controlled growing conditions

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:
    -standard: up to 500 µmol.m-2.s-1
    for cool / warm white or RGBIR;
    -optional: up to 1.000 µmol.m-2.s-1
    for cool / warm white or RGBIR;

  • Temperature control: programmable controller ramps temperature up or down in the range of +15 to 50 oC.
  • Intuitive programming: allows parameter changes to temperature, photosynthetic light or shaking speed.
  • 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
