  • Improve fed-batch fermentation by measuring mass flow

    How can my fermentation process yield a more consistent product? Any biochemical process is only as consistent as the parameters that control it. What makes a fed-batch fermentation process particularly susceptible to variation is the fact that it relies on many critical parameters. With an aerobic fermentation process, temperature, pO2, substrate consumption, and pH are primary ...
