This project aimed to develop a low-cost miniature incubator (Mincubator) that provides a stable environment to grow phototrophic cells. The Mincubator is designed to augment phototrophic cell research with controlled lighting and temperature based on user input. The hardware is designed to be used in an incubator or separately on lab benches and sends real-time data to an online spreadsheet at specified intervals. The Mincubator simplifies the research process, enabling more sample variations to be tested in the same amount of time. Cultivation tests show that the Mincubator can maintain a set temperature and light intensity, surpassing the unregulated sample in transmittance percentage. Further work is needed to solidify the build quality and user experience of the Mincubator.
