Immobilized Enzyme Systems Enzyme Immobilization: - Easy separation from reaction mixture, providing the ability to control reaction times and minimize the enzymes lost in the product. - Re-use of enzymes for many reaction cycles, lowering the total production cost of enzyme mediated reactions. - Ability of enzymes to provide pure products. - Possible provision of a better environment for enzyme activity - Diffusional limitation
