The scopolamine-releasing hairy root clone DL47-1 of Duboisia leichhardtii was cultured in an Amberlite XAD-2 column-combined bioreactor system for continuous production of scopolamine. The medium used was continuously exchanged during culture to maintain the electrical conductivity of the medium constant. After culturing the hairy roots in the system for 11 weeks, 0.5 g/l of scopolamine was obtained in the column. When the roots were cultures in the reactor system containing polyurethane foam…
