  author={’ NorhayatiPa and Khairul Azly Zahan and Ida Idayu Muhamad},
Researchers all over the world have been studying microbial cellulose which is a biopolymer for more than a century as it is receiving great attention for its wide applications. Many researches have been carrying out in order to find better methods of microbial production at a large scale. Using Rotary Discs Reactor (RDR) is one of the alternatives to produce higher yield of microbial cellulose. This study has been done to compare production of microbial cellulose using RDR with the traditional…

Study on the Production of Bacterial Cellulose from Acetobacter xylinum using Agro-Waste
Overall parameters of fermentation kinetics revealed a high rate of BC formation and efficient conversions of glucose to biomass and BC by A. xylinum on coconut water substrate, and coconut water proved to be a more suitable substrate to produce BC in comparison with pineapple juice.
An evaluation of fermentation period and discs rotation speed of rotary discs reactor for bacterial cellulose production
Acetobacter xylinum strains are known as efficient producers of cellulose. A. xylinum is an obligate aerobic bacterium that has an oxygen-based metabolism. The dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration in
Process parameters for fermentation in a rotary disc reactor for optimum microbial cellulose production using response surface methodology
In this study, microbial cellulose production by Acetobacter xylinum 0416 using standardized liquid pineapple waste was carried out in a 4-L rotary disc reactor (RDR). The objective of this study was
The Potential Use of Papaya Juice as Fermentation Medium for Bacterial Cellulose Production by Acetobacter xylinum 0416
Bacterial cellulose had been proven to be a very versatile natural polymer produced by bacteria. One of the major constraints in producing bacterial cellulose is the high cost of fermentation medium.
Optimized culture conditions for bacterial cellulose production by Acetobacter senegalensis MA1
The optimized conditions of growth medium resulted in enhanced production of bacterial cellulose by A. senengalensis MA1, which is around 20 times higher than that produced using an unoptimized HS medium.
Production and properties of bacterial cellulose by the strain Komagataeibacter xylinus B-12068
MTT assay and SEM showed that native cellulose membrane did not cause cytotoxicity upon direct contact with NIH 3T3 mouse fibroblast cells and was highly biocompatible.
Monitoring Initial Glucose Concentration for Optimum pH Control during Fermentation of Microbial Cellulose in Rotary Discs Reactor
The study aimed to investigate the effect of initial glucose concentration on the microbial cellulose production using Acetobacter xylinum in a Rotary Discs Reactor (RDR-2 liter volume). The
The New Strain of Acetic Acid Bacteria Komagataeibacter xylinus B-12068 – Producer of Bacterial Cellulose for Biomedical Applications
Glucose was found to be the best substrate for BC production among the sugars tested; ethanol concentration of 3 % (w/v) enhanced the productivity of BC.
Production of Trichoderma micropropagules as a biocontrol agent in static liquid culture conditions by using an integrated bioreactor system
Results obtained from the integrated tray bioreactor system showed that static liquid culture fermentation offers potential for industrial scale fungal BCAs production.


Factors affecting the yield and properties of bacterial cellulose
Physical properties of BC samples synthesized either in stationary cultures or in a horizontal fermentor revealed that cellulose from stationary cultures demonstrated a much higher value of Young's modulus, but a much lower value of water-holding capacity.
Structural investigations of microbial cellulose produced in stationary and agitated culture
Structural characteristics of microbial cellulose synthesized by two different methods have been compared using FT-IR and X-ray diffraction techniques. Cellulose synthesized by Acetobacter xylinum
Towards electronic paper displays made from microbial cellulose
This is the first significant effort to achieve an electronic display using bacterial cellulose and has the potential to be extended to various applications, such as e-book tablets, e-newspapers, dynamic wall papers, rewritable maps and learning tools.
Modeling and predictive control of a rotating disk bioreactor
A rotating disk bioreactor (RDB) produces cohesive cellulose gels rapidly because of the high surface area, high volumetric efficiency, and low power consumption. A novel feature of the RDB that we
The structure and mechanical properties of sheets prepared from bacterial cellulose
A sheet obtained from bacterial cellulose had a remarkably high modulus of elasticity as reported in Part 1 of this series. The Young's modulus of a sheet prepared by squeezing and drying a gel-like
