A fermentor system for regulating oxygen at low concentrations in cultures of Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Abstract

The growth of yeast cells to high densities at low, but constant, oxygen concentrations is difficult because the cells themselves respire oxygen; hence, as cell mass increases, so does oxygen consumption. To circumvent this problem, we have designed a system consisting of a computer-controlled gas flow train that adjusts oxygen concentration in the gas flow… (More)
