Novel method for measuring oxygen uptake: a report about research success of Bilfinger Industrietechnik Salzburg

February 11, 2020

The prestigious journal GEN reports in its online portal on a scientific article recently published by the Bilfinger Industrietechnik Salzburg research and development team. The article describes a new method for the precise and straightforward measurement of the oxygen uptake of organisms cultivated in bioreactors.

This method combines mathematical relationships with bioreactor characteristics and offers two major advantages: it replaces expensive measurement equipment for exhaust gas analyses and is more versatile than conventional measurement methods. Bilfinger Industrietechnik Salzburg offers its customers know-how and support in the characterization of bioreactors and is currently implementing the new methodology in its products, such as the advanced process monitoring and control software Qubicon®.
