Hardware Bioemulsiya consisting of: thermostat-body with actuator control unit; removable bioreactor in the bag; Cooler-thermostat Cryogem-03M.Operational Protocols
Development of new technology to produce biomass of microorganisms and BAS using the emulsion nutrient medium based on modified hydrocabons. Microorganisms and BAS produced per the developed technology will have the increased resistance to freezing, drying and aerosoling - negative factors of biological preparations storage and use. Technology of biomass production in the closed-type autonomous reactor will decrease the cost of biological preparations.
