Exhaust gas analysis in fermentation processes
A great benefit of mass spectrometric techniques in online gas analysis is their ability to monitor gaseous compounds over a wide range of concentrations (ppb to %), gas pressures and gas flows. This allows the control, monitoring, improvement, and automation of chemical and biochemical processes in research or industrial applications.
The IPI GAM Sequencer software is the main component of an application specific software package especially designed to be used in fermenter monitoring and bioreactor applications.
The GAM 2000 BioR provides concentration values of O2 and CO2 (other gaseous components can be added depending on the measurement task), which can be displayed in a third-party software interface together with other parameters from third-party devices (e.g., pH value).
This enables an insight into the fermentation process for research purpose and to optimize it.
