Previous nutrient mist bioreactors used ultrasonic misting to generate fine droplets, but are not scaleable. Thus, to scale-up root cultures, a new misting system must be used. The new system uses a spray nozzle that produces very fine droplets that are not slaved to the air stream for deposition. Air, however, is crucial for root growth. This project used our mist deposition model to predict how the separation of the air from the mist droplets might alter root growth.
