How it works
Set up the hardware
A Pioreactor requires only a few hardware pieces: a Raspberry Pi, the Pioreactor HAT, and the Pioreactor sleeve. The Pioreactor HAT and sleeve are what you'll use to control and monitor your microbes.
There are additional hardware elements such as peristaltic pumps and LEDs that can be attached as well
Watch your cultures grow in realtime
Now that you've set up your hardware, you can visit the Pioreactor web interface. The interface is hosted locally, on the Raspberry Pi. This is where you'll go to start activities and monitor your microbial culture.
Update your bioreactor settings
Using the Pioreactor interface, you can start automations or manually change any of your bioreactor settings. For example, you can adjust temperature, stirring RPM, lighting and pumping all through our online platform.
Control individual Pioreactors from the interface, or control a cluster of Pioreactors in concert.
Export your data
You can visualize your experiment in the Pioreactor interface or export all of your experiment data for further analysis.
