New Materials and Technology for Cell Immobilization


New Materials and Technology for Cell Immobilization

G J Salter et al. Curr Opin Biotechnol. .


The choice of support materials for immobilizing cells is rapidly expanding. The literature that has appeared over the past year suggests that hydrogels will remain the first choice for the forseeable future, even though they are associated with many widely recognized problems. There is increasing interest in the use of tougher polymeric materials, and especially of inorganic ceramic supports. However, the most suitable cell support can be selected only after the process or form of reactor in which it is to be used has been assessed.
