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 by Vaisala K-PATENTS® Pharma Refractometer, can help you:

  • Monitor continuously the degree of fermentation and fermentation conversion.
  • Gather understanding for identifying the fermentation endpoint.
  • Identify immediately the need for nutrients addition.
  • Control nutrients solution concentration and reduce costs by using only the amount required.
  • Automatically control fermenter feed-valves.

The application note is about fermentation applications and  explains in detail the benefits of using refractive index in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The note also includes recommended installation points for best performance.
