The volumetric mass transfer coefficient (kLa) is often used in order to compare the efficiency of bioreactors and as an important scale-up factor. In bioreactors, a number of methods are available for estimation the overall volumetric oxygen mass transfer coefficient: the dynamic method, the steady-state method based on a preliminary determination of the oxygen uptake rate, the gaseous oxygen balance, the carbon dioxide balance. Each method provides a different estimation of the value of kLa… CONTINUE READING
