Monitoring and controlling of the process parameters is very essential in all industries and effective methods to monitor those parameters are need to be developed, optimized and need to be maintained at their maximum efficiency in order to meet the desired product yield and product quality. Varieties of products are being manufactured through biotechnological processes which include various primary and secondary metabolites, tissues, vaccines, therapeutic proteins etc. Various factors are involved in cultivation of cells and production of the desired product by biotechnological process which includes, medium composition, bioreactor designing, identifying and controlling very minute parameters in narrow ranges in order to obtain the desired product quality and productivity. During the process of fermentation, those minute parameters are to be monitored and controlled within the operating ranges that decided the quantity and quality of the product. Process parameter monitoring requires a detection system to measure, to analyse, to monitor and to control the required parameters within the given r operational range. Various monitoring systems have been implanted which includes manual mode of operation, off-line mode of operation and online mode of operation. Among all, online mode of operation is the best operative mode which identifies, measures, analyses and controls the required parameter as fermentation is in progress.
High-impact journals are those considered to be highly influential in their respective fields. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
