Phyco-Lifts to Support R&D

Another Varicon Aqua project completed – two bespoke Phyco-Lift systems with working volumes of 1.5 m3 and 3 m3 respectively; featuring a full suite of sensors and process control, including an automated shading array. Working closely with our client to deliver their exact requirements this unique design allows for operation in both airlift and bubble column configurations. Furthermore, the interconnected modular design enables scale-up without the performance drop normally associated with the scale up of many alternative types of photobioreactor. Other design benefits include low shear and high mass transfer culturing conditions. Again we thank our client for their support and highly collaborative approach. We wish them great success with their R&D program and look forward to further collaboration as their project evolves!
