Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9960093A2] The present invention comprises novel culture methods and devices in which living cells or subcellular biocatalysts are immobilized by the opposition of forces. The immobilized cells or biocatalysts may be attached to support complexes that add to the resultant vector forces. One embodiment of the apparatus comprises a cruciform design. Commercial applications of the apparatus include efficient isolation of metals from ores and removal of gases.
