Batch Sterlization MCQ Questions and Answer

MCQ on Batch Sterilization / Batch Fermentation  : 

What is Batch Sterilization

  1. Batch sterilization is the most commonly used and suitable method for liquid media sterilization.
  2. Generally, the Batch Sterilization process is completed into three steps: heating, holding, and cooling period.
  3. In the heating step, the steam is directly injected into the fermentation medium, or the vessel is heated electrically by heating jackets / Coils.
  4. Now the temperature is increased until it reaches the sterilization temperature where it is held for a set period. During this period, most of the unwanted microorganisms are destroyed from the media and Bioreactor.
  5. Finally, the system is cooled to bring the sterile culture media back to the desired temperature. 
  6. The autoclave is an instrument that works on the principle of batch sterilization. It is used to kill germs that invade the fermentation media. 
  7. The highest temperature, which appears to be feasible for batch sterilization is 121°C.
