The current demands of the world’s biotechnological industries in enzyme productivity and development of novel techniques for increasing there shelf life.Enzyme immobilization provides an excellent base for increasing availability of enzyme to the substrate with greater turn over over a considerable period of time.Nowadays immobilized enzymes are preferred over their free counterpart due to their prolonged availability that curtails redundant downstream and purification processes.
“The process whereby the movement of enzymes, cells, organelles, etc. in space is completely or severely restricted usually resulting in a water-insoluble form of the enzyme.” Immobilized enzymes are also sometimes referred to as sound, insolubilized, supported or matrix-linked enzymes.
