Biochemistry Analyzers Provide Fast Measurements for Fermentation Processes

Aug. 21, 2013
Being able to measure and monitor the fermentation quickly with accurate results is critical.

Xylem’s YSI biochemistry analyzers provide a critical solution to monitoring the secondary fermentation process in both bioprocessing and life science applications.

From high-tech biopharma to California wine making, fermentation control in life science and bioprocessing applications is a critical component of any conversion process. In biotech applications and synthetic biology platforms, such as converting cane sugar into hydrocarbon fuel, there is critical timing that must be achieved during the conversion process. And similarly such is the case with winemaking, the timing and balance of the secondary fermentation process is critical. To be off one way or the other can mean the difference between producing a great vintage or producing cooking wine for the kitchen.

The rapid progression of activity in the second fermentation phase in this case could turn the entire process from efficient and effective to worthless and ruined with the snap of a finger. Being able to measure and monitor the process quickly with a customized solution with accurate results provided in a timely manner (under 1 minute) is critical. Xylem’s 2900 and 2950 biochemistry analyzers can help achieve these results.
