The Application of Single Detector Magnetic Sector Mass Spectro- Meter Systems in Fermentation off-Gas and Liquid Analysis

  • M. J. Winter


Mass spectrometry is an accepted technique in fermenter off-gas analysis — providing most important data in following the course of a fermentation. The particular advantages (of flexibility and precision) in using the single detector magnetic sector type instrument will be described.

To allow studies of species dissolved in fermenter borth media (at ppm levels) membrane probes have been developed. By this means, parallel studies of off-gas and liquid can be caaried out allowing greater insight into the processes occuring.
