MFC - first weekend

First tests of bioreactor powered on horse meat. With the courtesy of  House Layer in Kranj, we started using a nice place for one-month testing. Before coming to Kranj preparations were mostly getting all materials and equipment needed for tests.  Methylan blue, different measuring pots (Mikro+Polo), Lactobacillus culture (Biotechnical centre Naklo), Agar, agar (food store), Inox rods for electrodes (MDM), carbon (Samson), digital multimeter (IC Elektronik), different plastic containers ... (hardware shop).

Salt bridge initial formula 300 ml of water, 30 ml of salt (NaCl) and 5 g of Agar agar. Later ratio was 10% of salt and 5% of agar agar.

Minced meat was processed in a blender to smaller pieces. Meat 17% (1/2 kg and 2 1/2 of water)

Lactobacillus - bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus

Toner was added to epoxy glue

Preparation of bioreactor was mostly handled by Sara Zupanc and Benjamin Drakslar who were also suggested making additional tests on the different percentage of content of the cultures.

And the results after the end of the weekend.
