Sample text

Most of them are based on thermal gelation. The beads are produced through dispersion of a sol±gel in vegetable oil and gelified by lowering the temperature. A commonly used material for entrapment is kappa-carrageenan, more stable than alginate beads in biological media. But the high temperatures (45±50 ëC) used in the process are unfavorable especially for immobilization of plant and animal cells. Consequently more than 80% of cell encapsulation processes is still carried out using alginate as the matrix for immobilization.

This step is necessary to improve capsular durability and biocompatibility. Also, if a liquefied core is desired, the final APA capsules can be washed in a sodium citrate solution, which chelates calcium and solubilizes the intracapsular alginate gel. 5 displays an apparatus utilizing air flow to form droplets and a calcium chloride solution for gelation into microbeads. In order to improve the mechanical stability and biocompatibility of the APA system, a number of modifications have been employed.

The host immune system response to microencapsulated cells can be divided into two categories: response to encapsulated cells, which can be triggered by insufficient immunoprotection, and response to the capsular membrane, which is instigated by inadequate biocompatibility. 146 The water activity and mechanical resistance were observed to increase with bead and capsule size. Transport properties (ingress) were assessed using a variety of low molar mass and macromolecular probes. For the membrane-containing microcapsules, larger membrane thickness, observed for the larger capsules, retarded ingress.
