The Multitron is a
KAUST standard incubator system. The lab possesses 9 incubator chambers, each
equipped for phototrophic microbial culture. Temperature 10°C-50°C,
light 0 – 500 µmol photons m-2s-1 and platform rotation
rates are controlled independently for each chamber. These are used for
controlled culture experiments ranging in scale from 50 ml to 5 L. The systems
do not have CO2 supply.
