Abstract: Five different chemical reagents and Frays were tested for the sanitization of immobilized biocatalysts with high penicillin G acylase (PGA) activity. The most effective chemical reagents were N-cetyl-N,N,N-trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and 2-isopropyl-5-methylphenol (thymol). The optimum concentration of CTAB for the treatment of the immobilized enzyme was 0.25% [w/v] and 1 h, for immobilized cells 0.06% [w/v] and 3 h. The optimum concentration of thymol for the immobilized enzyme was found to be. 0.1% [w…
