Data from manual sampling is often not enough to fully understand the bioprocess. Not only is it time-consuming, but it comes with additional risks like contamination or sub-optimal growth conditions. Adding to these challenges, available technologies make it difficult for scientists to study key parameters throughout the entirety of the experiment. One such critical process parameter for any microbial bioprocess is biomass.
Biomass monitoring is concerned with measuring the concentration of microbial cells in a culture and plotting it over time. The result is an organism- and process-specific growth curve that enables researchers to understand, optimize, and control the fermentation and, ultimately, the production of the desired product.
Biomass monitoring is essential for bioprocessing in industries from food to biopharma, but to accurately monitor biomass, you need the right technology.
