Diffusion in gels containing immobilized cells - A critical review

Westrin, BA and Axelsson, Anders LU (1991) In Biotechnology and Bioengineering 38(5). p.439-446
Abstract
Eleven experimental investigations of diffusion in gels containing immobilized cells are reviewed. The experimental data, which quantitatively express the diffusion coefficient as a function of the cell concentration, are compared with a number of well-known equations developed for mass transfer in heterogeneous media. Based on this comparison, a procedure for the theoretical prediction of effective diffusion coefficients in cell-containing gels is recommended.
