Anaerobic Fermentation Monitor

The Anaerobic Fermentation Monitor (or AFM) is a robust and user-friendly laboratory parallel fermentation system that allows for accurate comparisons of carbon conversion rates and yields for six simultaneous anaerobic fermentations. Monitoring the amount of gas that evolves from a fermentation broth under well controlled conditions is a reliable comparison method that has proven to be very useful in all industries that use anaerobic fermentations. Because carbon dioxide production is stoichiometrically coupled with carbon source conversion, very useful metabolic data can be obtained. The AFM provides very accurate standard measuring of gas from six parallel fermentations that is both very low in maintenance and very easy to use.

 

Features

  • Monitoring anaerobic, metabolic yeast activity for alcohol production
  • Six independent but simultaneously yeast fermentations
  • Individually stirrer speeds and temperatures can be set or time programmed
  • Accurate comparison of conversion rates and yields under different conditions (temperature, strain type, carbon source or nutrients)
  • Easy to operate and clean
  • Fully controlled with user-friendly PC control and data analysis software
  • Very strong magnetic stirrers, able to handle very viscous media
  • Proven value for research and QA purposes

Applications

  • Measure conversion rates and yields of lignocellulose
  • Hydrolysates into biofuels
  • Test and compare different yeast strains or different feedstock/substrates
  • Quality control of regular/commercial yeast
  • Quality control of traditional feedstock (such as molasses)
  • Conversion of wort into beer
  • Conversion of grape juice into wine
  • Alcohol tolerance and toxicity studies
  • Industrial and academic research on yeast and potable alcohol/bio-ethanol/bio-butanol production
