Enzyme technology

Students investigate the use of a bioreactor and write a report on their findings (supports OCR Unit 15).

This resource contains:

  • Investigating a bioreactor. Students make a bioreactor containing an immobilised enzyme and use it to produce lactose-reduced milk - STUDY SHEET 
  • Using bioreactors. Students make a detailed report of the findings of their investigation and relate them to the use of enzyme technology and bioreactors in industry - STUDY SHEET 
  • Bioreactor techniques. Techniques for immobilising an enzyme, constructing a simple bioreactor, processing with a bioreactor, conducting pilot studies with bioreactors, and a dipstick test for glucose concentration using diastix - FACT SHEET
