Water activity of the substrate is an important and acute factor for growth as well as for metabolic production of microorganisms or for biocatalyst systems. A sensor has been designed in order to control this parameter on-line during submerged and solid-substrate fermentations. This sterilizable sensor allows the measurement of the relative humidity of the… CONTINUE READING
