Oxygen input

is a limiting factor in aerobe cultivations (especially when aiming to high cell densities) 65. Therefore, the oxygen input and the following transfer is of great importance when choosing suitable bioreactors, when optimizing processes and in the scale-up of processes. The bioprocess engineering parameter that is used for characterization is the volumetric oxygen transfer coefficient, also named kLa-value.
