Once your culture reaches your target density, it can easily be transferred to the 2L photobioreactor to conduct experiments, grow your own nutrients for healthy smoothies, or continue scale-up of your culture to even larger volumes.

Add the Grofizz LED Growth system to maximize growth or bioproducts under different wavelengths of light.

Main Uses in Algae Culturing

1. Getting a small amount of culture to multiply when you’re first starting out.
2. Maintaining the mother culture in reserve in case something goes wrong and your spirulina dies.
Gas exchange air lock isolates the culture from the outside environment, ensuring the purity of your live spirulina culture and reducing the risk of contamination.
For the main grow area, you will also need a larger tank. Depending on your settings, you may require some extra pumps, piping, led lights and harvesting filters.
If you’re looking for a “plug & play” solution, this grow-your own spirulina unit could be your solution.
