Scaling up is used to develop an industrial bioprocess from the knowledge acquired in the laboratory scale (based on mathematical and physical models).

1-It can be done in two ways: Increasing the number of reactors: there is no risk of scaling errors because they are exactly the same, but nevertheless there is a great expense of $ with the follow-up and of all the bottles. Increase the volume of the reactor to the required (more logical): you can not do the scaling directly, but you have to describe
