External xCUBIO Exhaust Analysis


Up to four cultivation systems of every type and scale

Bioreactor and fermenter exhaust contains components, which give information about status and processes inside the cultivation vessel. The CO2-content is directly linked with mammal cell’s respiratory activity while O2-content proves photosynthetic activity in phototrophic cultures. These gas concentrations can additionally be used to calculate factors like the respiration coefficient of all kinds of microorganism cultures.
