Title: Designing culture beads for the production of bacterial cellulose
Authors: Hong, Julio Farn Hing
Keywords: DRNTU::Engineering::Bioengineering
Issue Date: 2018
Abstract: Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a pure form of cellulose that has a relatively simple production. The primary producer of BC is Gluconacetobacter xylinus, but its productivity remains low. Cell encapsulation is a process for isolating cells, and can be used as part of cell sorting for identifying mutants as well as for modification with other materials to give rise to composites. In this paper G. xylinus was encapsulated in microspheres made of alginate and agarose, then functionalized with PEDOT:PSS. These microspheres hold great potential for future applications.
