A Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) or biological fuel cell is a bio-electrochemical system that utilizes microorganisms to convert chemical energy, available in a bio-convertible substrate, directly into electricity.  As a bio-electrochemical system, MFC contains two electrodes, anode and cathode. The electrodes can be made of variety of electrode material, such as carbon cloth, carbon paper, graphite rod etc. Functional microorganisms are able to grow on electrode in substrate solutions to convert a large variety of organic materials into energy, water and carbon dioxide via their natural systems.  The bacteria use only part of the produced energy to process nutrients and sustain their life.  Through MFC, the rest of the energy can be harnessed to generate electricity. MFC has a wide range of applications, such as waste water treatment and energy generation, underwater power needs, bio sensors, power for implanted medical devices etc.

Microbial Fuel Cell Kit Includes:

• Includes syringes (1ml, 10ml, 30ml), sterilized petri-dish
• Inoculating loop
• 25 G needles
• Corning 50ml sterile centrifuge tube
• PES filter for collecting microorganisms in sample

0.2 um sterile nitrocellulose liquid filter is to prevent contamination of microorganisms from liquid phase and 0.2 um sterile PTFE membrane syringe gas filter is to prevent contamination of microorganisms from gas phase.
