The Application of a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer to Biotechnology Process Control

  • Candace D. Bartman


Mass spectrometry has been widely used to monitor off-gases for process control of fermentation reactors. Within the past several years, the quadrupole mass spectrometer has been recongnized as an excellent analytical tool for off-gas analysis. The subject of this paper, the Questor™ Process Gas Analyser, is a fully automatic system that has the advantages of fast response, full scanning capability, the ability to monitor reactors and low maintenance requirements.
