Microbes are crucial in manufacturing essential products such as ethanol, antibiotics, vaccines, and food products. Culturing microbes is a standard practice in research and industry which requires continuous monitoring to track their growth for optimisation and reproducibility. Cultures are monitored manually by taking multiple samplings and offline data recording which is labour-intensive. We are developing an innovative device to automate monitoring of microbial cultures. It is time-saving, cost-efficient and eco-friendly technology to drive innovation and accelerate research breakthroughs.
