Cell Immobilisation Biotechnology Biotechnology is divided into two volumes. The first volume is dedicated to fundamental aspects of cell immobilisation while the second volume deals with the diverse applications of this technology.
The first volume, Fundamentals of Cell Immobilisation Biotechnology, comprises 26 chapters arranged into four parts:
  • Materials for cell immobilisation/encapsulation,
  • Methods and technologies for cell immobilisation/encapsulation,
  • Carrier characterisation and bioreactor design, and
  • Physiology of immobilised cells: techniques and mathematical modelling.
