1 Both can maintain optimal specific growth rate and substrate concentrations. In Fed-Batch, effluent is not continuously removed and thus washout does not occur . Fed-Batch vs Continuous Bioreactors Fed-batch fermenters good for production of compounds produced during very slow or zero growth. In Fed-batch, the feed does not need to contain all the nutrients needed to sustain growth. Why not? Contamination will also not have the same dramatic effect on a fed-batch fermenter. Why not?
