Has anyone put a camera in a Pioreactor?

As well as seeing the stirrer and growth in action & producing some potentially interesting time lapses, it would be really useful if we could see our sparger bubbles. An internal macro camera could let you check everything was OK remotely.

The affordable build of the Open Flexure Micrososcope uses an inverted Raspberry Pi camera. So if optics were the only issue we could ask their team for input.
