For cultivations under CO2-controlled conditions the BioLectorsystem is equipped with a special CO2 up-regulation module. This module consists of an additional gas connection for CO2 on the back side of the BioLector and a CO2 sensor inside the cultivation chamber.
The sensor continuously measures the CO2 level inside the chamber and automatically regulates the flow of CO2 into the chamber. In this way, a CO2 level between 0 % and 10 % can be generated in the chamber. Independent of the additional module, all of the microbioreactor's standard features remain unchanged.

Up to three additional fluorescence modules can be added to the standard filters for biomass, pH, and DO. In total, six different modules fit into the system.
