Productivity enhancement of B. subtilis by cascade continuous fermentation

The majority of microbial fermentations are performed in batch or fedbatch mode, further increasing energy consumption and steps, limiting the productivity, conducting high costs. In some cases, these limitations are based on the equipment and technologies available [1]. The successful establishment of open production process based on continuous mode will lead to reducing the production costs of industrial bio-products like biostimulants and biofertilizers. The most of interest products obtained by Bacillus spp are produced during the stationary phase and when spores are formed. To solve this limitation, a continuous cascade mode in a multi-stage fermentation process was applied. Before establishing the continuous mode, the growth and biomass yield using sucrose, glycerol, and glucose was characterized by testing the optimal carbon source in batch mode with a Bionet’s F0-BABY Multibioreactor.

The strategy for the continuous fermentation in cascade mode was applying in two bioreactors, the chemostat mode in exponential phase in the bioreactor 1 and for the sporulation the bioreactor 2 was used for a semi-continuous strategy by cycles withdrawing the final broth to a storage tank at 4ºC, previously to the addition of preservatives. For the chemostat process a range of dilution rates between 0.1-0.6 h-1 was characterized, and for the semi-continuous cycles at intervals of 8-10 h were used. The main objective of this study is to present our current research in the development of continuous fermentation processes applying scalable and reliable technologies using a Bionet’s F0-BABY Multibioreactor with a Continuous Process Module.

    Recombinant Protein Expression in P. pastoris in a bioreactor via a semicontinuous mode

    Pichia pastoris has been successfully used as an efficient expression system for heterologous protein production.Herein, we report the development of a semicontinuous process to improve the production of recombinant proteins in P.pastoris by its cultivation in a BIONET’ s F1 benchtop bioreactor of 3 L equipped with a continuous process module(CPM). Six repetitive batches were conducted in a semicontinuous process by replacing 2 / 3 of the culture every 72-96 h.The overall process in a volume of 3 L of culture yielded a protein concentration of 0.28± 0.13 mg· mL-1, […]

    Effect of fermentation defoaming agents on TFF

    Tangential Flow fitlration consists on the passage of the product feed in parallel to the surface of the filtering element/membrane [1]. The most bioprocesses use surface-active agents to reduce the foam formation, widely known as antifoams, defoamers and defoaming agents among others.
