Modern fermentation processes are used to obtain substances such as enzymes, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), amino acids and vitamins as metabolites from microorganisms.

Increasing the productivity of the process, the needs of the micro-organisms must be fulfilled as far as possible, i.e. supplying sufficient oxygen and nutrients during the entire process. In addition, metabolic by-products such as carbon dioxide must be removed, and ideal temperature and pH conditions must be maintained.
