Episode 24. BPS Chronicles: A Portable Microscope, Algae Oil and Photobioreactors

Ivan June 30, 2020

A long time ago, in January 2020, when the pandemic was merely a phantom menace and people could go outside and travel (unimaginable!), way back then Jack visited the British Phycological Society conference and interviewed a lot of people. So many that we’re still processing those tapes, and in this episode we are excited to present three more very impressive interviews.

  1. Our first interviewee is Andrew Monk from Iolight, a startup that produces a science-grade portable microscope. This little engineering marvel allows scientists to analyze their samples right in the field without going back to the lab. Applicable in numerous disciplines phycology included.
  2. Next, we have Georgina Andrews from Algaecytes, a company that aims at waste-free algae farming and producing algae oil. What’s algae oil you ask? Well, listen up to learn about that and we’ll only say that it’s very suitable for vegans. Jack and Georgina also discuss some peculiarities of farming algae while trying to keep it harmless for the environment.
  3. The third interview is with Dr. Marco Lizzul, innovation manager at Varicon Aqua. This company specializes in different types of photobioreactors and helps companies around the world with starting their own algae farms.

We hope you’ll find the episode educating and useful, and don’t forget to follow the podcast on social media to learn even more.

We’ll see you in the next one!
