Web app experiment 5 - HTML5

Biomass growth in continuous stirred tank reactor (CSTR), a bioreactor. The reactor volume is fixed at 0.1 m3. Click the Run button to start. Hit the enter key or click out of field after changing inputs.

Biomass growth rate = MUmax * substrate conc / (Ks + substrate conc)
Yield function = (Vmin + a * substrate conc)^p
Substrate consumption rate = (Biomass growth rate / Yield function) * biomass conc
