Abstract

Samples from fed-batch fermentations of Penicillium chrysogenum on complex medium are rheologically characterized. The behavior is well described by a power law model for which the parameters are estimates. Furthermore, two types of model media are characterized and compared with the real fermentation samples. Xanthan solutions are found to mimic the rheological properties of the filamentous fungi much better than carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) solutions.
