Definition of Term
- batch culture
Also called closed culture. A form of culture in which a given volume of liquid medium is inoculated with cells (e.g., bacteria, unicellular algae) capable of growth in that medium, and the inoculated medium is incubated for an appropriate period of time. Cells growing under these conditions are exposed to a continually changing environment due to the gradual consumption of nutrients and the accumulation of metabolic wastes, among other factors.
