Redox Sensor & Transmitter

The metabolic activity of microorganisms depends on many factors, including oxidation and reduction reactions, or the “redox potential” of the culture environment. Redox reactions govern the metabolism of biologically important nutrients such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur. Measuring their redox potential allows the fermenter operator to monitor the addition of reducing or oxidation agents while ensuring that the potential is in the proper range for cell growth.
