Methods: Inoculum was collected by paring a wart after antiseptic dressing and by pressing it in between two sterile glass slides a thin film like material prepared.
Operational variables as pH and initial inoculum size as well as supplementation of industrial media with yeast extract, and tryptone were evaluated by means of experimental methodology.
The three studied parameters were temperature (25-35[degrees]C), inoculums size (5-15% v/w) and moisture content (40-60%) [3].
Various process parameters like initial pH of basal media moisture content incubation time inoculum size incubation temperature and substrate levels were optimized for lipase production.
For this reason, specific studies on the effect of substrate to inoculum (S/I) ratio for various organic wastes have been carried out (Chynoweth et al.
The effect of different concentrations (1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, and 5%) of the substrate was carried out and the effect of different inoculum sizes (1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, and 5%) of the substrate was also studied.
