Immobilized enzymes are extensively used in clinical analysis, as detectors in immunoassays and diagnostic kits, because of improving enzyme stability and allowing a flexible design of the analytical devices. Enzymes have a great potential in clinical medicine in the treatment of congenital metabolic deficiencies, in the selective elimination of toxic metabolites accumulated by organ malfunction and in the selective nutritional depletion of malignant cells. Enzyme immobilization in solid matrices or by confinement within semipermeable membranes has been used both in extracorporeal (ex vivo) and intracorporeal (in vivo) applications.

Insoluble enzyme aggregates, prepared by mixing suitable aggregating agents with enzyme solutions, have also been explored for cross-linking to generate cross-linked enzyme aggregates (CLEAs), which exhibit similar activity and stability to CLECs. Finally, spray-dried enzymes can be cross-linked to form cross-linked spray-dried enzymes (CLSDEs). However, this method is less common since the enzyme is liable to significant deactivation during the spray-drying process [7]. 6 Enzyme Applications Due to several process advantages, including mild reaction conditions, high substrate specificity, and environmentally friendly processing, enzymes have been utilized extensively in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and fuel industries primarily for manufacturing purposes.
