Consider the plots of r vs. S below (labeled “1” and “2”), sketched for substrate consumption in a particular immobilized cell system subject to substrate inhibition. In one case the rate of substrate consumption is plotted as a function of average substrate concentration in the pores (Spore), and in the other case the rate is plotted as a function of the bulk substrate concentration (Sb).
Within the range of substrate concentration shown, specify the value of Sb – and corresponding value of Spore - at which there are no mass transfer limitations, or state that no such conditions exists.
This question belongs to bioreactors in biotechnology and discusses about substrate consumption in a particular immobilized cell system subject to substrate inhibition.
