Bioreactor. Small-scale bioreactor used for studying bacteria. Bioreactors are devices that maintain a specific environment to allow organisms or their derivative substances to undergo chemical processes. They allow all aspects of the environment, such as pH, temperature, and light, to be controlled and maintained at the required levels. This reactor contains a sewage sludge sample to study techniques for the removal of pollutants, such as nitrate and phosphate, from water discharged from sewage treatment plants.
