Fermentation is a process used for cultivating micro-organisms or other organic material into important pharmaceuticals such as antibiotics, therapeutic proteins, enzymes and insulin. It is typically carried out in temperature-controlled tanks (fermenter) which require addition of nutrients at the correct concentration to maximize productivity of the organism of interest.

Learn how real-time liquid concentration measurements with the Vaisala Polaris™ Refractometer enables:

  • Continuous monitoring of fermentation and fermentation conversion
  • Data to help identify fermentation endpoints
  • Control of nutrient solution concentrations, reducing waste 
  • Data for fermenter feed-valve controllers
