1Both 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 BioreactorsFed-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?Rationale for Fed-Batch Cultivation
