by S. Alison Arnold, Linda M. Harvey, and Brian McNeil, Strathclyde Fermentation Centre (Scotland), and Jeffrey W. Hall, FOSS NIRSystems Timely process information is required to make effective fermentation decisions, but those data are rarely available. NIR spectroscopy can allow you ? by incorporating rapid, nondestructive, multiconstituent analyses of fermentation broth directly into fermentation control strategies ? to make those decisions. This article will help you make that improvement by outlining the analysis strategies.
by S. Alison Arnold, Linda M. Harvey, and Brian McNeil from the Strathclyde Fermentation Center, Strathclyde, Scotland; and Jeffrey W. Hall, Foss NIRSystems Although rarely available, timely process information about fermentation biomass, substrates, intermediates, and nutrients is required to make control decisions. NIR spectroscopy offers the opportunity to improve fermentation processes by incorporating rapid, nondestructive, multiconstituent analyses of fermentation broth media directly into fermentation monitoring and control strategies.
