About this book

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.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Many volumes have been produced describing what can be done using immobilised cells, but there are fewer that bring together information on the various fundamental aspects of cell immobilisation. This book fills that need more than adequately, providing information both for experts and for newcomers to the field, and should be available in the library of any institution involved in biotechnology. … The book is pleasingly produced and the … chapters are easy to read without in any way trivialising their subjects." (Chris Bucke, Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology, Issue 81, 2006)
