We study chemostat models with constant substrate input concentrations. We allow growth functions that are not necessarily monotone. The measurement is the substrate concentration, which is piecewise constant with a nonconstant delay, so only sampled observations are available. Under new conditions on the size of the delay and on the largest sampling interval, we solve the problem of asymptotically stabilizing a componentwise positive equilibrium point with the dilution rate as the control. We use a new Lyapunov approach.
