Cell immobilisation biotechnology is a multidisciplinary area, shown to have an important impact on many scientific subdisciplines - including biomedicine, pharmacology, cosmetics, food and agricultural sciences, beverage production, industrial and municipal waste treatment, analytical applications, biologics production. The "Cell Immobilisation Biotechnology" book is an outcome of the editors' intention to bundle the extensive widespread information on fundamental aspects and applications of immobilisation/encapsulation biotechnology into a comprehensive reference book and to give the reader an overview of the most recent results and developments that have been realised in this domain. "Cell Immobilisation Biotechnology" is divided into two volumes. The first volume is dedicated to fundamental aspects of cell immobilisation while the second volume will deal with diverse applications of this technology. "Fundamentals of Cell Immobilisation Biotechnology", which represents the first volume, consists of 26 chapters that are arranged into 4 parts: (1) "Materials for cell immobilisation/encapsulation", (2) "Methods and technologies for cell immobilisation/encapsulation", (3) "Carrier c

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)
