Modeling, optimization, and computer control of the cephalosporin C fermentation process.


In this study, a cephalosporin C producing strain, Cephalosporium acremonium (ATCC 36225), was chosen to determine the optimal conditions that maximize antibiotic production in a mixed substrate of glucose and sucrose. A model for cell growth and cephalosporin C production at different pH and temperature was developed and the associated parameters were… (More)
