Abstract
IT IS PROPOSED TO INCREASE THE UTILITY OF INTRACELLULAR FLUORESCENCE MEASUREMENTS FOR CONTROL OF FERMENTATION AND CELL CULTURE BY CORRECTING ON-LINE FOR BACKGROUND FLUORESCENCE OF THE MEDIA. THIS WILL USE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE EVANESCENT WAVE AT THE SURFACE OF AN OPTIC WAVE GUIDE. THE WAVE PENETRATES INTO THE LESS DENSE MEDIUM ONLY TO ABOUT THE DEPTH OF 1/3 TO 1/2 WAVE LENGTH. THE THICKNESS OF MEDIA SWEPT BY THE EVANESCENT WAVE IS MUCH LESS THAN THE SIZE OF A CELL, THEREBY ESSESTIALLY SEPARATINGTHE FLUORESCENCE OF THE MEDIA FROM THAT OF THE CELLS. FIBEROPTICS WILL BE USED IN THE PHASE I STUDY.
