Bioprocess Engineering Internship Test

Intern has to take Bioprocess Engineering internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Bioprocess Engineering topic.

1. Why Penicillin does not affect the human body when taken?
(A) Because it is a Broad spectrum antibiotic
(B) Because it is a Narrow spectrum antibiotic
(C) Because it is an analgesic
(D) Because it is a Narcotic drug
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Penicillin is the Narrow spectrum antibiotic that only kills the specific bacteria or microorganisms and not the normal bacteria or microorganisms present in Human body, in this way human body is unaffected.

2. Which type of fermentation was used by Engineers to produce penicillin on large scale during World War 2?
(A) Semi-Solid Fermentation
(B) Deep-Tank Fermentation
(C) Biphasic Fermentation
(D) Solid-State Fermentation
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The Deep-Tank Batch Fermentation in which there is the application of submerged culture technique which was able to produce Penicillin of Approximately 50mg/ml which grew on large scale during World War 2.

3. Which chemical is usually used before the Bacterial transformation process?
(A) Calcium chloride
(B) Potassium chloride
(C) Ferric chloride
(D) Sodium chloride
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Before Bacterial transformation, bacteria are treated with a chemical called Calcium chloride, which causes water to enter into the cells and makes them swell. These swollen bacteria are then known as competent bacteria, which is further used in Bacterial transformation process.

4. In the case of Rota meter, which is used for measuring the water flow rate?
(A) Only one variable is involved, i.e. independent variable (the Rota meter reading)
(B) Only two variables are involved: one independent variable(the Rota meter reading) and one dependent variable (the water flow rate)
(C) Only two variables are involved: one independent variable(the water flow rate) and one dependent variable (the Rota meter reading)
(D) Only one variable is involved, i.e. independent variable (the water flow rate)
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: Rota meter is a device which measures flow rate. This is done by allowing the cross-sectional area the fluid travels through to vary, causing a measurable effect, i.e. water flow rate is dependent on Rota meter.

5. What is rate-zonal centrifugation?
(A) Based on separation of particles by mass
(B) Based on separation of particles by density
(C) Based on separation of particles on solubility
(D) Based on separation of particles on size
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: Rate-zonal centrifugation is a centrifugation technique employed to effectively separate particles of different sizes. Once the centrifugation is over, fractions are collected.
