Rotating simplex method of optimization of physical parameters for higher production of extracellular pectinases in bioreactor

Abstract

Rotating simplex method of optimization has been successfully used to determine the optimal conditions for extracellular pectinase production by Aspergillus niger in batch bioreactor. Maximum production of 1.132 U of polymethylgalacturonase, 1.313 U of polygalacturonase and 0.0091 U of pectinlyase was obtained at pH (controlled). 3.38; agitation rate, 483 rpm and aeration rate, 2.12 vvm. These conditions were found to be more suitable for pectinase production.
