The Springer Lab Manual about immobilized cells is structured in such a way that guidelines were followed and translated to some practical methods. Like for the guidelines for immobilized cells a structure was chosen in which general aspects of immobilization were covered, the kinetics were described and engineering aspects were covered. Besides laboratory methods some simple calculation procedures have been given in this lab manual. The combination of the practical methods with the calculations provide a tool to do research with immobilized cells. The lab manual concludes with some recent, promising and practical cases of immobilized cells as examples of applications with potential.
