AlgaeTron 230
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

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.

Key Features

  • Three independently illuminated cultivation spaces: illumination in each space can be controlled separately and each space can be equipped with its own shaker
  • Programmable LED-based illumination:
  • - warm white or cool white LED-light panels with added far-red LEDs 735 nm (in all three panels)
    - precise intensity control from 1 % to 100 % of total output
    - light modulation according to a predefined function (continuous, pulse, sine, triangle)
    - timing steps from seconds to hours and days
    - user-programmed function (optional) or daylight simulation (optional)


  • Light intensity:
  • - top panel: up to 500 µmol.m-2.s-1 (at 30 cm from the light source); optionally up to 1,000 µmol.m-2.s-1(with Light Upgrade)
    - two lower panels: up to 350 µmol.m-2.s-1 (at 30 cm from the light source);

  • Temperature control:
  • - programmable controller ramps temperature up or down in the range of +15 to +45 oC (shaking ON, maximum illumination ON)
    - optionally +10 to +55 oC (with Temperature Upgrade)
  • Intuitive programming: allows parameter changes to timing, temperature, photosynthetic light, and shaking speed
