The Phenometrics Photo Bioreactor is an advanced algae culturing system that allows quick and easy determination of the best growth factors for the user’s algae strains. The original Phenometrics ePBR, PBR 101’s predecessor, was developed by Dr. David Kramer, a foremost researcher in photosynthesis and bioenergetics at Michigan State University. In recent years Phenometrics’ desktop photobioreactors have been used by algae production growers for the optimization of the algae before it’s scaled up in a pond. Phenometrics’ is now offering the third generation of PBR technology.
