Addition and Bioreactor Weight Controls
There are different fermentation modes in bioreactor systems: batch, fed-batch, and continuous mode. The batch mode is the simplest. The bioreactor is filled with the medium containing all the components that the organism requires to grow or produce determined biomolecules like a metabolite or protein. This fermentation mode has a production limitation: once the limiting substrate is consumed, the cells cannot continue growing, with limited productivity and low cell density.
