Determination of Cell Concentration in Bioreactors

Question

Consider the growth of enterobacter aerogenes in each of two independent chemostat operations, each of volume 500 L, each operating at steady state. Cell maintenance effects in each bioreactor are negligible, and product formation in each bioreactor is negligible. Growth of E,  aerogenes in each bioreactor is limited by ammonium ion, such that

Mass transfer limitations in each bioreactor are negligible. Finally, in each bioreactor, the feed is sterile and inlet flow rates are identical with S0 = 4.8 g/L, but substrate conversions are not the same.

Determine whether the cell concentration in bioreactor 1 would be less than, equal to, or greater than the cell concentration in bioreactor 2.

Summary

This question belongs to bioreactors in biotechnology and discusses about bioreactors and to determine cell concentration in a bioreactor.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
