New materials and technology for cell immobilization

Curr Opin Biotechnol. 1992 Apr;3(2):115-8. doi: 10.1016/0958-1669(92)90138-9.


The choice of the most effective manner in which to operate an immobilized cell system is both complicated and, to some extent, a matter of guesswork. There is increasing awareness of the factors affecting reactor choice, and present work is aimed at making reactor performance more predictable.
