ISS Expedition Duration
March 2009 - September 2013
Previous ISS Missions
Test of the closed-type autonomous reactor onboard the ISS.
Hardware Bioemulsiya consisting of: thermostat-body with actuator control unit; removable bioreactor in the bag; Cooler-thermostat Cryogem-03M.
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.
