(Professors Roger T. Howe and Jay D. Keasling --ChemE)

The goal of this project is to design, fabricate, and characterize an electrochemical oxygen micro-generator suitable for use in high density miniature cell culture arrays. As the design and fabrication of the bubbler are complete, we are currently characterizing the gas production of the bubbler. Current goals include the characterization of growth rates of bacterial suspensions growing on oxygen supplied by our bubbler and the determination of generated gas purity.
