Igrox is partner of Micro Bio Technology srl for the lighting system of NAUTILUS, the patented photobioreactor developed by MBT srl. Photobioreactors are closed systems that allow the cultivation of microalgae under strictly controlled conditions. The monitoring of the ideal growth parameters – temperature, pH, sterility – allows to create customized protocols, regardless of surrounding environmental conditions. Nautilus is MBT's first patented photobioreactor and leads to achieve high yields of pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and cosmetic ingredients from microalgae. In this way it is possible to reproduce biotechnologically all the desirable growth conditions, including the possibility of carrying out light-dark cycles to benefit from the effect of photoperiods on the algal culture.
