Looking for users who need more πŸ”₯

Are you interested in reaching higher culture temperatures (45-60C)? Or interested in putting your Pioreactor in warm incubator? We may be able to help you! Let me know: cam@pioreactor.com

Hi @CamDavidsonPilon,

Do you think it is possible to operate the Pioreactor in chemostat mode in an incubator at 40-50 degC without damaging the electronics and the dosing pumps? Has anybody tested this before? Also, do you think I would need to 3D-print the plastic frame on ABS to avoid deformation at high temperature?. I would appreciate your help very much.

Hi @FuaAleEnriquez,

Welcome! A question for you:

The base Pioreactor is made from PLA, which is okay until ~65C. At 40-50C, the plastic should be fine provided you don’t use the onboard Pioreactor heating. Do you plan to on using it to reach higher culture temperatures? If so, reach out to me!

Everything else should work, but I would recommend also adding some aluminum heat sinks onto the Raspberry Pi’s CPU (available most places and very cheap to buy).
