- Continuous production of isomalto-oligosaccharides from maltose syrup by the permeabilized cells of Aureobasidium pullulans immobilized into calcium alginate gel was studied using a column reactor. The immobilized cell column maintained its full activity over 45 days when the reactor was operated at a velocity of 0.1 h-1 at 50 degrees C using 60% (w/v) maltose syrup as a substrate, and the maximum productivity achieved was around 60 g/l.h.
