AMPTS® II was adapted to yeast ethanol fermentation and demonstrated to be an accurate, reliable and flexible device for studying the kinetics of yeast in simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (SSF) and fed-batch and simultaneous saccharification and fermentation (FB-SSF) of wild, non-edible cassava Manihot glaziovii. The correlation of CO2 derived ethanol agreed HPLC analysis (R2=0.99), hence recommended for fermentation kinetic studies.
