The desired product of bioprocesses is often produced in particulate form, either as an inclusion body (IB) or as a crystal. Particle harvesting is then a crucial and attractive form of product recovery. Because the liquid phase often contains other bioparticles, such as cell debris, whole cells, particulate biocatalysts or particulate by-products, the(More)
In this article, a qualitative study of the recovery of small bioparticles by interfacial partitioning in liquid-liquid biphasic systems is presented. A range of crystallised biomolecules with varying polarities have been chosen such as glycine, phenylglycine and ampicillin. Liquid-liquid biphasic systems in a range of polarity differences were selected(More)
The interfacial partitioning behavior of ampicillin and phenylglycine crystals in different two-phase systems has been investigated. The two-phase systems employed are water/dodecane, water/1-butanol, and water/pentane/methanol. By means of partition experiments and microscopic imaging, it has been shown that the mechanism of separation strongly depends on(More)
A sustained decrease in the intracellular ATP concentration has been observed when extra glucose was added to yeast cells growing aerobically under glucose limitation. Because glucose degradation is the main source of ATP-derived free energy, this is a counter-intuitive phenomenon, which cannot be attributed to transient ATP consumption in the initial steps(More)
A Stokesian dynamics computer simulation based method is presented for the estimation of the bed porosity of slurry-packed capillary liquid chromatography (LC) columns. A colloidally well-described reversed-phase stationary phase-slurry liquid suspension was used as a model system. The applied simulation method takes into account the velocity of the slurry(More)
