Hydrodynamic effects on animal cells grown in microcarrier cultures


  • This work was presented in part at the Worcester colloquium of the New England Biotechnology Association, Worcester, MA, March 21–22, 1985, and at the Annual Conference of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, Chicago, IL November 11–15, 1985.


Hydrodynamic phenomena in microcarrier cultures are investigated with regard to the development of improved reactor designs for large-scale operations. New concepts and theoretical models that describe new data as well as previously published data are presented.
