Book Description

First published in 1993: Fundamentals of Animal Cell Encapsulation and Immobilization is a concise reference volume that consolidates and expands our understanding of animal cell immobilization technology. The book presents fundamental studies that examine polymer toxicity, biocompatibility, mass transfer, and modeling of cell growth and diffusion. Specific applications of encapsulation to Parkinson's Disease are discussed in detail, and droplet generation and scale-up information will benefit researchers attempting to scale-up their cell immobilization systems.
Fundamentals of Animal Cell Encapsulation and Immobilization provides valuable information for industrial and biomedical researchers involved in animal cell immobilization, as well as for materials scientists, biochemists, microbiologists, biologists, and biochemical engineering students who wish to specialize in cell encapsulation.
