The optimum conditions for Acetobacter immobilization were investigated. The results show that: 1) the maximum oxygen uptake rate (OURm) and cell release are related to alginate and cell concentration in the gel; 2) different alginate concentration does not affect cell viability, but long storage in CaCl2 reduces the number of living cells; 3) the double alginate gel layers had no influence on cell viability and on the OURm and prevented cell leakage from the gel matrix.
