During microbial cell cultures, environmental conditions affect cell physiology and subsequently process efficiency. Physiological changes result in changing cell morphology, such as cell size variations. The aim of this work was to study cell size evolution of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae population exposed to various stresses during alcoholic batch fermentations, and to evaluate the potential use of cell size measurements to infer cell viability. During a reference culture, without perturbation… CONTINUE READING
