The characterization of biological processes catalyzed by enzymes or microbial cells is carried out by models including kinetic and mass balance equations. This course is therefore focused on creating mass and energy balances and their application in mathematical models describing the studied systems. These models of biological systems will be used to predict the behaviour of systems im limit cases and in scale-up (down) processes.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Halecký Martin doc. Ing. Ph.D. (16.09.2023)

Student will be able to:

Independently carry out mass balances of different biotechnological processes.

Extend the mass balances with kinetic equations describing the dynamic aspects of the system.

Estimate the key process parameters and by using them describe the scale-up (down) of bioprocesses.
