Incubator

Construction

We grow our cyanobacteria in a modified incubator with a timer-controlled fluorescent light. The incubator has a shaking floor.

  • Interior dimensions: 50 cm x 50 cm x 60 cm tall
  • Lighting: 32 W and 22 W fluorescent lightbulbs (circular shape). Measured light intensity on the floor varies from 3800-4500 lux on our flask

Current status

This section will be updated to reflect the current contents of the incubator.

  • Our light cycle is currently set to constant lighting.
    • I put the timer on the windowsill above the electrical outlet
