Two methods have been investigated for the measurement of dissolved oxygen in fermentations: the tubing method and the probe method. The sensing elements for both methods are steam-sterilizable and measure only the oxygen tension in the liquid phase. The tubing method is probably the most accurate and reliable method available for measurement of dissolved oxygen in fermentations but it requires extensive ancillary apparatus.
