Omega 3

The Omega-3- fatty acids are a subgroup within the Omega-n- fatty acids that count among the unsaturated compounds. The name comes from the old nomenclature of fatty acids. Before they were identified as such, they were commonly referred to as vitamin F. In the production facilities of Subitec, the formation of Omega 3 is in a one-step process in the cultivation modules for ...

Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a natural, reddish-violet dye that belongs to the xanthophyll- class of carotenoids. It is mainly produced by green algae and is responsible for the red coloration of crustaceans that consume these algae. In Subitec's production facilities, astaxanthin is formed in a two-stage process Combination of different cultivation modules for highest yield performed .

Photobioreactor

A photobioreactor is a system for the production of microorganisms outside their natural and within an artificial technical environment. The Flat Panel Airlift photobioreactor from Subitec is based on proprietary technology and is offered for industrial applications in the form of cultivation modules, for research- and laboratory applications in the form of preculture- and laboratory systems.

Cultivation

In the biological sense, cultivation is the creation and maintenance of conditions that guarantee the growth of certain organisms. Often associated with this is their reproduction. Very different organisms are cultivated. Subitec offers cultivation modules for industrial cultivation of microalgae and cyanobacteria, for research- and laboratory applications preculture- and Laboratory Systems.

Algae

The term alga is applied to various eukaryotic creatures that live in water and carry out photosynthesis. Microalgae and cyanobacteria in particular can be cultivated on our production facilities. Subitec offers cultivation modules for industrial cultivation of microalgae and cyanobacteria, for research- and laboratory applications, preculture- and laboratory systems.

Systems

Under systems we mean turnkey production systems that are suitable for highly economical and industrial production.

Cyanobacteria

The cyanobacteria form a division of the Bacteria. domain. They distinguish themselves from all other bacteria by their mostly, but not all types of, oxygenic photosynthesis ability. Subitec offers cultivation modules for industrial cultivation of cyanobacteria, for research- and laboratory applications preculture- and laboratory systems.

Microalgae

Microalgae are microscopic algae that are invisible to the naked eye. It is phytoplankton that is typically found in freshwater-, brackish water- and marine systems and lives both in the water column and in sediment. Subitec offers cultivation modules for industrial cultivation of microalgae and for research- Laboratory applications preculture- and laboratory systems.
