Exopolysaccharide production by Acremonium persicinum in stirred-tank and air-lift fermentors


Exopolysaccharide production by the fungus Acremonium persicinum was affected by the culture system used. The yields achieved in shake flasks were not obtained in a stirred tank reactor, except at very low stirring speeds (100 rpm). However when grown in an air-lift fermentor, exopolysaccharide levels were similar to those found with shake flask cultures… (More)
