Development of an economical, autonomous pHstat system for culturing phytoplankton under steady state or dynamic conditions

Laboratory investigations of physiological processes in phytoplankton require precise control of experimental conditions. Chemostats customized to control and maintain stable pH levels (pHstats) are ideally suited for investigations of the effects of pH on phytoplankton physiology, for example in context of ocean acidification. 209 more words
