Table 1 Comparison of regression methods for growth rate calculation using the presented MATLAB code

From: Automated growth rate determination in high-throughput microbioreactor systems

Cultivated organism Growth rate with 95% CI from regression method
WLR after log-transformation NLR
C. glutamicum
 Replicate #1 0.455 (0.448–0.462) 0.456 (0.448–0.463)
 Replicate #2 0.456 (0.448–0.464) 0.457 (0.449–0.465)
E. coli
 Replicate #1 0.601 (0.580–0.622) 0.603 (0.582–0.624)
 Replicate #2 0.615 (0.598–0.632) 0.616 (0.599–0.633)
 Replicate #3 0.617 (0.599–0.635) 0.618 (0.600–0.636)
  1. Growth rates with corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI) are shown for each replicate cultivation of C. glutamicum (n = 2) and E. coli (n = 3)
  2. WLR weighted linear regression, NLR non-linear regression
