Title: Optimisation of food to microorganism ratios during activated sludge respirometric batch assays
Authors: Ismail, Arshad Abdool Hak 
Issue Date: 2003
Abstract: 
The measured kinetics of a bacterial culture degrading a single organic compound as a sole carbon source in a batch reactor depends on the history of the culture, the identifiability of the parameters, and the manner in which the experiment to measure them is run. The initial substrate to biomass ratio (So/Xo) used in the experiment is particularly important because it influences both parameter identifiability and the expression of the culture history.
