Chemostat is commonly used to describe the dynamics of a microbial population in a continuous bioreactor in which microorganisms grow on a substrate and has attracted great interest of many scholars [1-8], since it was first introduced by Monod [9].
Time-delay system is also called system with aftereffect or hereditary system [16,17], and it is common in mathematical biology, such as population dynamics, the chemostat, neural network, blood cell maturation, transcriptional regulator dynamics, virus dynamics, and genetic network [18-23].
