Bioprocess Parameters And Their Monitoring

The bioprocess advancement is determined by the living cells capabilities and characteristics, the bioreactor performance as well as by the cultivation media composition and the main parameters evolution. The high metabolic network complexity inside the cells often determine very sophisticated, non-linear growth and product formation kinetics, with further consequences on the bioprocess behavior, but at the same time on the product quality and yield. The key issue of this rather complicated situation is the use of modeling and further on of computer assisted control as a powerful tool for bioprocess improving. The process models, as relationships of the input, output and inner variables, though incomplete and simplified, can be effective to describe the phenomena and the influences of great importance for control, optimization and better theoretical knowledge
