batch processing

Chemistry
The analysis of clinical specimens in a grouped “run”, which contrasts with the more labour-intensive testing of individual specimens.
 
Microbiology
The induction of bacterial growth in a closed-system bioreactor with a specific amount of nutrients; once nutrients are consumed, the system is drained of product and bacteria and a new “batch” of bacteria and nutrients are placed in the system.

In this section, three QoS batch mode heuristics will be explained.
Semi-batch and batch modes perform better with higher concentrated solutions, thus they would be used as a pretreatment unit, and the process would be then accomplished in column which work is satisfactory with relatively low concentrated solutions.
6a) was prepared after the EGDM/EtOH solution at room temperature was added to the reaction in a batch mode instead of dropwise.
Using Arbitrary Shape Deformation (ASD) technology engineers and designers can improve their designs using either manual deformations or using batch mode set up problems to be solved iteratively to find the best possible shape for the criteria.
Users of 3D_Evolution can generate a script to repeat the process in batch mode.
The batch flow tests consist of a high- volume order processing program used to process and import orders in batch mode, and a payroll processing program used to process employee checks in batch mode.
Before the bio-reactor can be run in continuous mode, the micro-organism culture needs to be grown in rich substrate conditions in a batch mode. Upon transition to continuous mode, inherent complexities of the chemical reactions that drive the bio-reactors (owing to the non-linear dependence of growth rates on substrate concentrations and bio-reactor conditions such as temperatures and pH) result in a host of dynamic characteristics including unstable steady states and oscillations (Mahecha-Botero et al., 2005).
Workflow in the laboratory can be broadly separated into batch mode processes and continuous mode processes.
"Comparable production methods such as vapour deposition or painting are so far only possible in batch mode, by working through the individual operations in sequence," says Steffan Runkel, product manager Singulus Decorative Coatings.
We liked the power of the drill-down investigations for real-time correlated alerts, ad hoc queries and batch mode reports, as well as the storage optimization and performance.
Batch Mode, offering set network access, enables a group of pre-printed guest accounts to be given upon entry into a building and can be processed by employees such as receptionists and security guards.
GIT is another SCT Banner user, and its administrative, online learning, and student portals are integrated to give real-time access to information--the only school in Georgia delivering it in real time instead of in batch mode, Sundal says.
