Cells Growth in Continuous Culture Continuous culture: fresh nutrient medium is continually supplied to a well-stirred culture and products and cells are simultaneously withdrawn. At steady state, concentrations of cells, products and substrates are constant . In batch culture: the culture environment changes continually. growth, product formation and substrate utilization terminate after a certain time interval.

Ideal Chemostat Same as perfectly mixed continuous-flow, stirred-tank reactor (CFSTR). - Control elements: pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature - Fresh sterile medium is fed to the completely mixed and aerated (if required) reactor. - Suspension is removed at the same rate. - Liquid volume in the reactor is kept constant.

Cell Growth in Ideal Chemostat A material balance on the cell and substrate concentration around the chemostat yields, dt dX R V X d k R V X g R V FX FX = - + - μ 0 F is the volumetric flowrate of nutrient solution (l/h); V R is the culture volume (l) (constant); X is the cell concentration (g/l); P is the extracellular product (g/l); µ g and k d are growth rate and endogenous rate constant, respectively (h -1 ). Subscript 0 denotes the parameters at the feed medium. dt dS R V s p Y X p q R V Y X g R V FS FS M S X = - - - / 1 1 0 / μ q p is the specific rate of extracellular product formation (g P/g cells-h) Y p/s is the product yield coefficient (g P/g S).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
