For the culture of photosynthetic organisms such as algae, plant cells and photosynthetic bacteria, we now rely fully on LEDs. The warm white LED light offers the ideal daylight-like spectrum in the visible range, with a very high proportion of photosynthetically active light. This universal solution ensures excellent growth of all photosensitive organisms.
"In addition, the LED lighting uses up to 50% less electricity than fluorescent tubes - and it has a longer lifespan. For us, this is a significant step towards saving energy in an environmentally sustainable lab" says Dr. Matthew Davey, University of Cambridge, UK.
The even light distribution over the tray ensures identical results in all vessels cultured in parallel. As an added bonus, compared to neon tubes, double the light intensity is available.
