INCLINED CULTURE SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SPORE RESUSPENSION FOR THE SPORE CULTURE OF RED ALGAE

Perez, Ignacio; Bulboa, Cristian; Contreras, Loretto Matilde; Avila, Marcela

Abstract

The invention relates to a device and method for the culture of red algae spores, which comprises: a structure with U-shaped guide frames that supports a system of frames supporting a substrate for the settlement of spores in an inclined position, which is handled from outside the water by means of a lever connected to two horizontal bars that support the guide frames; and a spore resuspension system comprising tubes in which water, air and spores circulate, to make use of non-settled spores. The invention also relates to culture in inclined frames (supplanting the paradigm of horizontal culture, used until now because of the lack of mobility of the red algae spores) and to the controlled use of the spore resuspension system, and prevents contamination caused by handling of the culture.
