Design and characterisation of a miniature stirred bioreactor system for parallel microbial fermentations
Abstract The establishment of a high productivity microbial fermentation process requires the experimental investigation of many interacting variables. In order to speed up this procedure a novelExpand
Quantification of power consumption and oxygen transfer characteristics of a stirred miniature bioreactor for predictive fermentation scale‐up
TLDR
Further insight is given into the performance of the miniature bioreactor design and its use as a tool for rapid fermentation process development and the creation of predictive engineering correlations useful for scale‐up studies are described. Expand
Thermal profiling for parallel on-line monitoring of biomass growth in miniature stirred bioreactors
TLDR
Results show that the integrated heat profile during E. coli TOP10 pQR239 fermentations followed the same pattern as off-line optical density measurements, and the maximum specific growth rates calculated from off- line OD and on-line thermal profiling data were in good agreement. Expand
Removal of casting defects from CMSX-4® and CMSX-10® alloys by electropolishing in a novel electrolyte; Deep Eutectic Solvent
Here we describe the use of environmentally benign Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) to electropolish oxide casting scale from Ni based superalloy turbine blades. These new electrolytes are a viableExpand
