Ultrasound enhanced mid-IR fiber optic probe

The combination of mid-IR fiber optics and ultrasound particle manipulation allows, for the first time, in-line cell measurements in industrial bioprocesses. Based on the recorded mid-IR spectra of cells inside a stirred bioreactor, rapid quantitative information on the chemical composition of microorganism, such as yeast, can be obtained.
