Cell Immobilization with Textile Carriers for TA Biodegradation
Fabrics provide an attractive alternative for cell immobilization carrier. In this study, the relationship of weave structure of fabrics and the effects of cell immobilization was investigated. Several kinds of fabrics with different weave structure were designed and produced acting as cell immobilization carrier. Adsorptive capacity of the textile carriers with different weave structure was measured and the biodegradation rate of TA by cells absorbed on textile carriers was also investigated. It is showed that adsorptive capacity and stability was significantly affected by weave structure of fabric carriers. The result also indicated that the ability to TA degradation was also improved by cell immobilization.
