Transfer of an Itaconate Production Process in Ustilago Maydis to the BioFlo 120 Bioprocess Control Station

  • BioFlo 120BioFlo 120
The unsaturated dicarboxylic acid itaconate is used as a building block for the production of pharmaceuticals and adhesives, as a copolymer for synthetic resins, and
is a promising starting material for biofuel production. Researchers at RWTH Aachen University have previously optimized a production process for itaconate using a genetically engineered strain of the fungus Ustilago maydis. The following application note highlights the simplicity and ease of use of the new BioFlo 120 bioprocess control station, through a successful process transfer from it’s predecessor, the New Brunswick BioFlo/CelliGen 115.
