Product Brochure: Phototrophic cultivation of micro algae in the BioLector XT microbioreactor
29 March 2023

Here, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences presents the BioLector XT microbioreactor and the BioLector XT light array module. The BioLector XT high-throughput microbioreactor enables real-time evaluation of biomass, fluorescence, pH, DO, and other key cultivation parameters for aerobic, anaerobic and phototrophic microorganisms, to quickly provide deep insights into your bioprocess development. Building on trusted BioLector Pro technology, the BioLector XT microbioreactor is based on a standard ANSI/SLAS (SBS) microtiter plate (MTP) format, and operates with online, pre-calibrated optical sensors. Disposable 48 well MTPs enable online measurement of biomass, fluorescence, pH and DO, while patented microfluidic technology supports simultaneous pH control and feeding. The optional microfluidic module eliminates manual liquid handling - no tubing/pipetting required, as everything is part of the gamma-radiated ready-to-use plate. The BioLector XT light array module (LAM) allows cultivation of phototrophic microalgae and cyanobacteria.
