Abstract: Abstract Adsorption of cells on particulate carriers is potentially one of the most cost‐effective immobilization techniques available. Diatomite carriers, such as Celite, have desirable physical properties, are inexpensive, and are suitable for both mycelial and bacterial systems. This work investigated the use of diatomite carriers as a biocatalyst support in a packed‐bed reactor where L‐tyrosine was enzymatically decarboxylated using adsorbed, non‐growing cells of Streptococcus faecalis. Composition of mic…
