glow plate

Postby lethalmonk6 » Sat Feb 12, 2011 12:39 am

Does anyone where/know how I can buy/acquire a glow plate and other necessary equipment needed for it to work? Google searching seems to be futile.

Also, does anyone have any large resolution/hi quality images of a glow plate algae system? Again, google doesnt seem to be helpful. (something like on this page http://www.sunlight-direct.com/bioreactors.php but bigger)

Glow plates are sheets of glass or plastic that "glow" when light is supplied to one of their edges. The light source for a glow plate can be artificial, such as fluorescent light, or natural, with sunlight being directly exposed to the plate or fed through a fiber-optic system.Glow plates are sheets of glass or plastic that "glow" when light is supplied to one of their edges.
