Algae Production

LT Industries is now Verum Analytics

New name, new developments, building on 40 years of analytical knowledge.

LT-NIR Analysis of Algae and Algae Products

Save hours of laboratory time by quick determination of Algae properties in a fast simple analysis.  Quantify the composition of biomass to be converted into ethanol or other value chemicals or measure algae growth properties online and in-process. Traditional methods typically involve chemical extraction, take hours and require extensive sample preparation.

Suitable for R&D Scale, Pilot Plant, or full scale production of algae, IsoChem Laboratory or Process Analyzers provide measurements that are easy to take, accurate, and have no operator dependency. Ease of use allows for at-line algae analyzers to be used by any level of operator.

Algae Measurements at all Phases of Production

  • Quantify Nutrient Levels: such as Nitrogen and Phosphorus
  • Photo-bioreactor growth stage: lipid production, cell mass, pigment, chlorophyll concentration, and algae classification
  • Evaluate finished algae harvest stage: lipid concentration, hydrocarbon, carbohydrate, and protein
  • Algae Oil: predict values of moisture, glyceride, and fatty acid content
  • Biodiesel Measurements: ASTM standards and more (see biofuel properties)
  • Strain Determination

Measure these algae properties and more within seconds either online or in the lab with the IsoChem Algae Analyzer. Contact us for more information regarding your specific requirements.

LT-NIR Analysis of Algae for Biofuels and Co-Products

Verum Analytics provides a complete algae analysis solution from feedstock to final product. Whether you are producing biofuels, algae ethanol, feed products, nutraceuticals, or other co-products, the Verum Analytics IsoChem Algae Analyzer can provide quick analysis at all stages of the algae production cycle.

R&D and Lab Scale Analysis of Algae constituents

The in situ analyzer allows for real-time measurements of materials in process, requires no sample extraction or consumption, and the probes are CIP/SIP/Autoclavable. Using a standard laboratory unit equipped with a multiplexer the IsoChem can monitor up to 20 vessels at one time. Results are sent directly to your DCS or Process Controller for real-time monitoring of the product.

The laboratory IsoChem system can be upgraded to a production scale in-process system as your operation grows.
