Phototrophic bioprocess optimization
Photobioreactors allow for exquisite control of your phototrophic bioprocess to optimize photosynthetic efficiency, biomass production, and high value products.
Cyanobacteria are the earliest group of photosynthetic gram negative prokaryotes to have evolved. They are capable of producing a vast diversity of secondary metabolites with bioactive properties such as antibiotics, antifungals, and antitumor. Cyanobacteria can be used to efficiently produce biofuels as well as next generation bioplastics and polymers. They are a genetically tractable system and are being used more and more for recombinant protein expression.
Applications for photobioreactors include growing algae and cyanobacteria for biofuels, bioplastics, pharmaceuticals, nutriceuticals, food additives, carbon capture, and waste water remediation.
