Oxygen uptake rate of immobilized growing hybridoma cells
The specific oxygen uptake rate of hybridoma cells immobilized in calcium alginate gel particles was measured, and the observed data was compared with those of non-immobilized cells. The uptake rate of the immobilized cells coincided with that of the non-immobilized hybridoma cells just after immobilization, but increased with cell growth. On the other hand, the cellular glucose consumption rate decreased slightly during the experiments. The increased oxygen uptake rate by immobilized cells was closely related to the formation of cell colonies in the gel particles.
