The lab photobioreactor

Our lab photobioreactor, NANO, is designed to provide a controlled and optimal environment for the growth of photosynthetic microorganisms such as microalgae and cyanobacteria, as well as macroalgae.

Our cutting-edge technology enables us to optimise the natural conditions for photosynthesis, by controlling with precision parameters such as light, temperature, pH and nutrients.

This photobioreactor has many advantages. First of all, it allows you to conduct reliable, reproducible experiments in a controlled environment to optimise your biomass production. Reliable, flexible and efficient, it opens up new scientific perspectives. Its TWIN system allows you to grow two different algae simultaneously or under different conditions.

“We were particularly impressed by the rapid growth of the microalgae and the biomass obtained”


“After 3 months’ use, we can confirm that it is by far the most effective photobioreactor on the market”

Frequently asked questions

Can we cultivate fragile microalgae (which cannot withstand agitation)?

This technology has been developed specifically for the culture of fragile microalgae and, in particular, T-Iso, which is a shear-sensitive flagellated microalga. Thanks to gentle agitation, we can cultivate many different species of microalgae.

Can we cultivate in batch or continuous ?

The control system allows your to cultivate in batch, fed batch, semi-continuous or continuous.

What do I need to put a PBR into operation?

– Electricity for the light and the control system
– Air to agitate the culture
– Salt or fresh water depending on the strain
– CO2
– Nutrients
– A starting strain
– A suitable environment

SALT is a patented technology developed by Synoxis algae to drastically improve productivity by optimising gas exchange and improving access to light.

If you want to cultivate in a more traditional tool, Synoxis algae also offers a cultivation tank.
