The application of PDW technology in industry-relevant biotechnological processes is to be evaluated. KULTPDW aims at online determination of biomass and other process relevant parameters during high cell density cultivations with Escherichia coli und Ralstonia eutropha. In doing so, the property of PDW spectroscopy will be used, which allows a distinction between absorption and scattering in aqueous solutions.
