The most common reactor configuration used for immobilized cells is that of the packed bed of particles. The advantages of packed beds include simplicity of operation and reasonable high mass transfer rates. Problems in the operation of packed beds include obstruction by uncontrolled cell growth and compression of the particles leading to excessive pressure drops. For these reasons simple packed bed reactors are mostly used for non-viable cells.
