Use of α-Galactosidase, β-Galactosidase, Glucose Isomerase and Invertase in Hollow Fiber Reactors
Hollow fiber enzyme reactors offer an excellent method of enzyme encapsulation. Due to their compact nature, they have a relatively large surface-to-volume ratio which facilitates substrate transport. The structure of the anisotropic hollow fiber membranes used in this study is illustrated in Fig. 1. They are non-cellulosic inert polymeric fibers which should be superior to cellulosic membranes with regard to thermal and chemical resistance, and resistance to microbial attack.
