Abstract

The effects of alignate composition on the growth characteristics and metabolic acitivity of encapsulated cells were investigated. The CaCl 2 concentration was varied either at the time of gelation or during culture maintenance to analyze the strength of the alginate gel network in the behavior of encapsulated cells. The LVG aligante gelled with 10 mM CaCl 2 showed that periodic washes stabilized the metabolic activity of the cells for 25 days before the cell growth. It was suggested that by manipulating the strength of the alignate gel network the growth of encapsulated cells can be controlled.
