Process and mathematical model in the formulation of microbiological media from the exoskeleton of crustaceans.
Culture media are very central in the study of microorganisms. Most microbiological media are formulated with beef or soya as protein source. The need for cheaper source of raw material is exploited with the use of exoskeleton of crabs (Callinectes amnicola; shell only) and shrimps (Penaeus notialis; head, shell and appendages). The mathematical model for the formulation derived and the...
