Growth & Analysis Chamber

Client
Green Has Italia SpA

Description
From our Client’s website:

“The growth chamber is at the heart of our activity. It is an indispensable instrument for rapid agronomic screening. The chamber can be controlled so as to recreate varied conditions, in terms of temperature, relative humidity and photoperiods.

This provides advantages in the study and selection of new products in terms of knowledge, quality and development.

Green Has Italia’s growth chamber encapsulates the most contemporary illumination technology thanks to its variable LED spectrum. This system allows for selective spectrum emission, concentrated in tight wave lengths and calibrated to the photosynthetic needs of each plant. […]

The system is also fitted with 30 fixed cameras.

Hourly photography provides continual observation of all phases of vegetal growth.”

Phycotrone

Client
Politecnico di Torino
Dipartimento di Ingegneria Ambientale e del Territorio

Description
Microalgae are rapidly becoming a disruptive bio-product to be used in extremely profitable markets, such as research, cosmetics, nutraceuticals and biofuels –among others.

meg’s Phycotrone has been specifically designed to be used in a research and laboratory scale as a microalgae growth platform.

It performs growth sequences in different volume scales and/or conditions, giving back critical information for:

• Colture’s development parametrization;
• Industrial scale-up setup.

The way for understanding both algae and their development.
