Abstract

The geometry of calcium alginate gel spheres is studied by fractal interpretation for prediction of number of cells to be immobilized. For alginate concentrations from 1 to 5% the simulated results are of 6.65 x 108, 1.44 x 108 and 5.27 x 107 N cell mL-1 for respectively 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 mm gel sphere diameters. Simulated data are compared with those resulting from literature and particularly with experimental trials where from 107 to 108 N cell mL-1, in 2% alginate beads with a diameter of 1.5 mm, is able to fulfil mechanical and swelling characteristics of alginate gel beads besides to supply good oxygenation.
