A way to assess the current impact of Bioprocess Control’s automatic technologies on the biogas field is to have a look at the number of publications.
The number of scientific publications related to AMPTS II has been studied from 2010 to 2014 using available data from a number of literature databases. There are indications that the growth rate of publications in peer-reviewed journals is exponentially increasing. The same pattern is also followed by publications using new channels, for example conference proceedings, newspapers and magazines, home pages, etc.

What is likely to happen in the near future? The wide range of applicability for AMPTS II and the increasing rate of publications in the most recent two years suggest that a further rate growth in publications based on data generated by Bioprocess Control’s product portfolio could be anticipated.
