Enzyme immobilisation is experiencing an important transition. Combinatorial approaches are increasingly applied in the design of robust immobilised enzymes by rational combination of fundamental immobilisation techniques (i.e. non-covalent adsorption, covalent binding, entrapment and encapsulation) or with other relevant technologies. The objective is to solve specific problems that cannot be solved by one of these basic immobilisation techniques.
