This project's focus is on increasing the efficiency of yeast resulting in a more productive fermentation. Prior experiments have shown that fermentations carried out within a high intensity magnetic field have an increased growth rate, as well as increased carbon dioxide and ethanol production. The monitoring of yeast cell morphology was based on optical microscopy coupled with image analysis. Total biomass was determined by testing absorbance. Viability of cells was found using Methylene Blue. Concentration of sugars was analyzed using the anthrone method.
